What is the problem ?
The mechanic who messed about with it is the problem and he caused the problem ( I no longer see him anymore ), he poked a bar through driver side wheel area trying to find a different problem at the time with suspension. ever since then from the exact/second moment whenever I turn off the engine it thuds. worse the longer has been running.
it was intermittent, the thud would come and go sometimes the thud would go away for weeks then come back and so on, now it is constantly there.
very unpleasant thud every time the engine is switched off, it has damaged parts due to the constant thud, the alternator had be replaced at it's pulley/bearing burnt out after months of rattling from being loosened. now something else has been damaged as another rattling noise can be heard when turning steering wheel from under bonnet.
has it been to a garage ?
Yes, the garage have had a look at it, checked the mounts e.t.c, said all looked fine and they can't see what is causing it.
Note : the rattle is coming from exhaust, put a jack under exhaust and the rattle goes away. the thud is not to do with the exhaust rattling.
Note : any advice to what the problem with it may be are very much appreciated. thanks
