Take your cricket ball out of the glove box ????

Sounds like you have changed just about everything

Just an idea engine mounts ???

hi mate,have the same prob with my velle.found its the wishbone bushes that are worn. 4 bushes either side of van, 2 top, 2 bottom. also been told,mark bolt positions before removal,as rear bolts are offset.not certain about the offset bit,but a couple quid on a paint pen may save a lot of heart ache later.all the best,hope this helps.

new to this site but thought I’d give you my findings with similar issues.
I had knocking from below gearstick area under floor. Turned out to be heat shield on exhaust came loose. Welded it back on and noise gone. Bottomend sump pan area was knocking and noisy when travelling around 50-60mph.
drained oil out which was low on dipstick but no oil light came on the dash to alert me.
filled with 5/40 semi synthetic, new oil filter and air filter no knocking now. Very happy.
just hope there’s no damage caused with running it low on oil.
let me know how you get on.
