Re: [T3] Knocking Noise

Hi Nick,
Check the worn stuff and wheel bolts as Jim suggested, but I get it
periodically, and with mine it's the CV balls popping in and out of the wear
dimples.  You may find moving the drive-shafts inwards and outwards to get a bit
of grease into the dry areas of the CV joint will help.  In a bad case, you'll
have to change the CV joint.  Probably it's an outer one - mine sounds like
those awful balls on string that were popular with kids in the '80s, called
click-clacks over here.

We did 2000 miles round Germany last year, not a sound.  Got home, removed all
the camping gear, and first journey, off it goes again - click-clack... - just
round sharp bends.  Stopped again after a few weeks though.
