RRS 3.6 V8 2008 Clunking noise rear

Hi guys I'm new to this site and am looking for advice.
I've recently acquired my first range rover, lovely car with one nagging problem. I encountered a clunking noise coming from the nearside rear when pulling away from a stop condition traffic lights roundabout etc there was an advisory on the mot for worn bush/pin same area which I assumed was the problem.got that replaced didn't resolve the issue so took it back to the dealers they booked it in at a nearby specialists they use did checks heard the clunking noise the guy said he swapped the wheels back to front front to back which didn't resolve the issue so I took it back again they had it for over 2 wks and changed arb bushes picked it up yesterday got to my first set of lights and heard it again !!. I know nothing about cars was wondering if anyone has had this same issue and could maybe shed some light on what the problem could be before I return it again. The cars under warranty and drives like a dream this one nagging issue is driving me nuts as they don't seem to be able to bottom it.
Thanks in advance guys any info is greatly appreciated

Hard to say bud but it sounds like the bushes have been checked/replaced and if everything else is tight, I can only think your ARB needs bleeding or replaced. Does it look like any part of the dynamic response system has had work done? 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Wouldn't be something simple like the n/s/r harmonic damper (big swinging lump of metal attached to chassis) just touching the chassis or exhaust when pulling away.

Dynamic response system ? Sorry pal way over my head like I said I know nothing about cars suppose I need to read up on this stuff. Just disappointed with the specialists not finding the problem when they had it so long. The specialist heard the noise the 1st time he looked at it so can't understand just want it bottoming
Thanks for replying

Thanks col
He did say he'd checked in that area pipe runs etc looking for that type of issue so I would be thought he's eliminated simple causes.all bushes etc are tight as well no issues with them in that area.maybe another specialist is what's needed.i don't know

Does it happen even with the most gentle of starts or just when a bit of right foot is used? I'm wondering if the harmonic mass damper is hitting something when you pull away sharply. This is one of a pair of big lumps of cast steel that sit over the rear chassis members above the tail pipes each side of the car. It is free to move in a rocking direction front to rear. If this is moving under acceleration then it might be just knocking against the rear exhaust box or something else (not much there to hit but it's not unknown). Worth a look - you can do it on your drive. Wear some goggles if you've going to have a look as it will likely drop crud in your face when you're under the back. You can see the weight and move it easily by hand. Try it through its full range of movement to see if it touches anything. Two minutes to check and totally free. Thumbs Up

Other than that, it's a suspension arm bush. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

I take it the rear prop shaft centre bearing has been checked, big rubber donut with the prop shaft running through the middle. The rubber separates from the outer bearing allowing the prop shaft to bang up and down . Easy to check by looking under the car, may have to remove a sheild.

Hi
Yea the propshaft bearing was checked that's ok. I'll have a look at the harmonic damper this weekend but I think that's been checked too.
