Need some help please,
got a right clucking noise from the pass side and check suspension and spring, amd drive shaft and cv joing and wishbone arm and bushs, and then grapped hold of the anit roll bar and thats the noise i hear when the car slows down even when changing gear.

Anyway tried to change the bush's tonight and thats a no no job for me, but while putting the inner arch cover back on, i knock another part of the arch cover and heared something drop out.

This got be very worried when i found what had dropped but cant find anywhere were it has come from. This is from the pass side. its just over half an inch wide.

for got to say its a 99yr TD mk2

I was gonna say that but after looking closer I decided its not, Its a bolt and the head has sheared off for some reason, No idea where its from though

The threaded part would be further along the bolt if it was a pinch bolt. Looking at those pictures the threaded part starts almost straight after the head.

Well the garage have had a good look round and cant find where it has come from, but the knocking noise was the rear engine mount which was shagged as he told me, and both wishbone arms need doing next year

I'm sure you'll find its the lower arm bolt thats bolts to the hub, this would explain the clonking noise you are getting as the lower arm will be moving, IIRC think you'll its a T55 socket
