Take it to another main dealer who won't dismiss it as a non issue. Get it looked at and resolved asap is my advice. A clunking due to play can affect other components as I've learnt the hard way

Many thanks.

I think I may email my concerns to the main dealer in Bristol with my concerns and attach the bulletin.

Thumbs Up

had the ARB replaced by land rover and the noise is still there Confused
embarrassingly, the garage handed the car back to me, happy that the sound was gone. only had to drive out of their parking lot to notice it's still there!

When you said "replaced ARB" - was it just the bushings ? I think the bushing would squeak when old - but it would have to be very worn for the roll bar itself to knock against the chassis mounting point ? Did you ask them to keep the old bushings to see their condition. I had a clunk coming from the front suspension in my BMW E46 - driving straight at 30-40MPH down uneven road. I saw an episode of wheeler/dealers where they replaced sway bar drop links to fix a similar problem. I purchased a couple of $18 Delphi drop links - had them installed - did the ARB bushings at the same time - and fixed the problem. Old bushings looked fine - and it was hard to tell how worn the drop links were - but if the bushing in there is worn - you will have metal to metal contact in the link - and this will cause a knocking noise. I think those parts are cheap on the RRS too - and should be replaced (on standard - not active system at least) - not just the roll bar bushings themselves.

I think noise from worn control arm bushings is different - clunk if you slam on brakes from low speed (for example)

You guys that have had this done successfully and now have a perfectly quiet car, how much did you pay for this fix?
