Whenever I move off from being still my car knocks or like ticks its hard to describe...

Its really bugging me...what could it be? It does it once when you move off and I can make it knock when i am doing about 40 in 3rd and quickly press/de press the gas pedal....
Could it be something in the engine?
I have checked inside the car for things like seatbelt and I dont think its that if anything it seems to be coming from the front, near where im sitting....possibly the steering or in the engine bay??

Helpppppppppp

I really hope it can get sorted maybe I will take to take it to a garage...Anyone any ideas what it could be?

Im taking it in for a service soon as its due an inspection but I want it sorted now!

It could be one of several things but hard to say from ^^^^ scratch

If you can make it to the pub meeting tomorrow I'll have a look for you Smile

Could be the clutch?
I know they can make a knocking noise when you are gassing then left suddenly as the momentun keeps you going. Just a guess

Definately not the rear brakes, I know it does that but this noise is different and happens all the time throughout the drive when you stop and then go, not just the once off.

Its having a service in 2 weeks so hopefully they can fix it then Smile

as it's a transverse engine arrangement I'm guessing it's the engine rocking back and forth as you change gear and ease off. Most likely a engine mounting worn.
