Of course, had you simply typed 'knocking noise' into the search box, you would have seen several threads (including one started by myself) giving you more than a pretty good idea as to what the problem is more than likely to be, but;
a) that would mean doing something yourself,
and b) having a bit of patience, as when I done exactly that just now it took a whole 0.55 seconds...

I love it some one asks a question with a description and wonders why he does not get much response.

So you have checked your CVs and found nothing wrong. Why would you think that the bit of bar between then would be the problem?


If it was bent pressing the clutch would not make any change. or did you not realise there are actually 4 CVs on a 2wd van?

Pressing the clutch making the noise go often points to the gearbox as being the problem.


You say the noise changes with speed but you do not say if it is with wheel speed or if it is different in different gears.

You have checked for big rocks stuck in your tyres haven't you.


I am out take it to a garage.
