Hey guys Iíve had this funny knock sound come from the right hand side, Iíve my S40 be 3 years not & cant seem to pin point where itís coming from. Iíve changed the engine mounts, right hand side top shock mount & bearing, inner tie rod & outter track rod end both side wheel bearings.
In my job yesterday the mechanic changed the inner tie rod end which he noticed from before & said it was wore & I taught was the culprit. But it knocks when I slow down & change gears from 3rd to 2nd or setting off from 1st to 2nd I can hear it. Also gonna need to change the boot on the steering rack as it was cable tied on from someone before & wont last long as the cable tie has ripped on the tie rod.
As he took the boot off to change the tie rod he noticed the rack is leaking slowly which Iíve noticed but taught nothing of. Would the steering rack be the culprit of the knock or would it be the anti roll bar bushings on the subframe that could be causing it.
Gonna look into a reconditioned steering rack & see how much & pay my job to change it or an independent mechanic that I can trust to do the job.
Greatly appreciated for any help with this.
