Just some more observations for the great clunking thread. Mine has once again stopped for the time being.
Until last week it clunked to high heaven and my stereo is always loud to compensate for hearing loss and tenitis
I have to recall my statement that it goes away with the engine compartment warming up. Since I've been paying more attention to it, I noticed that it was still clunking on a roundabout after a 100 mile drive.
I'm still not sure about the general direction of the source. Could come from anywhere, but as mentioned my ears are not the best.
I did try to clunk with my head out the window and that seems to confirm that it's louder in than out (...won't say it) but not 100 % sure on that one.
The temperatures here have left the sub-zero range (or are in the 40-50s now if you prefer). Again not sure if I can pin the clunk to the cold for lack of diary. Still notable.
I wish you all a merry Christmas and a clunk-free new year.
