Droplink Issue

Post by Baronoli » Mon Oct 07, 2019 10:57 am

Hi all,

Had a weird issue with a noise coming when simultaneously braking and turning the wheel.

There's a few downhill roundabouts where I live, meaning I have to brake when going around to an extreme exit. There's then a knocking sound, like a drive shaft style problem. It also does it when manuvering whilst braking into a parking space.

The car went into Vauxhall and after some faffing with what they thougth were stones rolling around the underbody engine guard, they come to the conclusion it must be a droplink issue which is a known problem on the Grandland X's - they are ordering these in and replacing when they can. Anyone else had issues similar? Not seen anything on the web...

I've had my grandland x for about a month and now got a knocking noise when I turn after a t junction I've took it back to VAUXHALL they said it is the drop link but have not got a gatter kit to go on it as they have got none in the uk so I have to wait two weeks for one

I waited the 2 weeks, had the drop links replaced and it still does it. A senior technician went out on the road test with the head of servicing, plugged it into the laptop and the software has said its the ABS and its normal. Strange I haven't noticed it since owning the car since February 2018, but hey ho. I have it in writing that its normal too, so I'm semi-happy!
