E320 CDI estate 2001 avantgarde..thumping noise
Hi Does any one have any strange noises coming from the back of the w210 estate when going over uneven surfaces or speed bumps.
I have removed everything from the back including the spare wheel..tools etc...and still get a 'thumping' noise when going over speed bumps.
I have checked under the car and removed a few stones from the plastic caping under the rear wishbones...and that reduced the 'tinging' noise but i still have the thumping...
...having looked under the seats the battery is bolted in tight and on the rear passenger side there is a module of some sort that is also tightly fixed...
...I suspect it is coming from under the module ...as when I reach under the car there is a 6 inch space between the floor under the read passenger seat and the under side of the car...I think there is something dislodged in that space but have no idea of telling what it could be.
The rear suspension is all very tight and there is no unsual noise from the shocks etc.??
mines not a seven seater and I even tried removing the rear boot flooring panels but its still making the annoying noise.!
Anyone else with a similar noise?
