I'd like to have working air con in my BX by next summer. I may even take the TZD off the road this winter to get it top notch.

Had an odd one recently on the DTR turbo. Clattering like mad at anything over about 20mph. Sounded like a loose piece of plastic airdam, or a rattly wheelarch liner from inside the car. Could also have been droplinks, but it didn't sound right for them

after much poking around under the front of the car, and coming to the conclusion that there was nothing loose, looked under the back of the car only to find a loose rear wheel brake shield.

30 seconds to fix that after it's been rattling for 2 weeks.

D'OH!
this might be a signature

See I reckon it'll be something like that David. The noise is a hollow one and the most similar thing I can find is the noise from the play in the OSF driveshaft. Its bloody irritating :x

Still, whatever it is will fall off soon and then I'll find out what it was :lol:

I am getting a knock when starting engine and switching off, also when accellerating/decellerating. Seems/feels to be around pedal area which makes me suspect lower engine mounting :cry: , any other ideas from fellow knock sufferers?

Yep turned the ignition through the open window so that I could observe engine movement as it started/stopped ....... damn thing's hopping around like a mexican jumping bean :twisted: . This is the estate with new mot and supposedly no advisory note with it, hmmmmm :-k

Daresay there's plenty of advice on mountings when I do a search though :wink:

I get a single clonk entering a turn in my TuRD - since I replaced the struts.
Looks like I'm not yet finished with the strut job :?
