I need your help on the noise I am experiencing! It is intermittent! I've been to the dealer couple
of times and couldn't get any help on it! It seems that the clunking noise happens mostly after I drive the car for a while or backup from the garage! It happens when the RPM suddenly goes down when braking or turning! It doesn't happen all the time though! Sometimes the noise is soft and sometimes is loud without the stero on! The car has around 10k on it , but I've had this problem since almost new! Dealers have checked suspension and brake system and all they did was lubrication and tightening! The clunking is more like ball-joint problem which happens on old cars. It doesn't continuously clunk, but will only do it once when it happens. Some times I only can duplicate it in a undergroung garage! Any help appreciates!
MB DOC helped me on that and I talked to the dealer her in Bellingham, WA and they can't find that red fishe #33-96101.
His comment is as follows! Can u just let me know what is the fix? I don't think it is my ears!
On the 1996 & 97 cars we had this problem. Sounds like your car may also have that problem! The lower control arm bushing is allowing movement of the arm, once in either direction. In the RED fische topic 33-96101 may contain the info needed to rid the car of this noise!
