Clonking noise from driver footwell

Post by Jackp » Wed Feb 07, 2018 4:03 pm

Had an issue in December with a noise from the front end (driver footwell area) took it in to the dealer who confirmed a fix was available. It went back 2 weeks ago now a version 5 fix and still not done. It is back in today for them to re look at the problem. really annoying sound at low speeds only. Anyone else had the issue. The car has only done 3400 miles ..

I had a clonking noise from the front on poor road surfaces at low speed, approx 10 to 20 mph. Jaguar replaced the steering rack under warranty to cure this. 2015 Jaguar XE S.

Is this noise something you experience all the time or not long after you put the car into drive? I ask because I have a clunking noise from the driver footwell area but it only happens shortly after I put the car into drive and does not seem to re-occur.

A sort of soft thunk like a flap closing?
Happens around 25mph after driving off for the first time?
It was noticed by a lot of people when the XE first came out and someone found out that apparently it's the ABS doing a calibration.
Quite normal and as the dealers say "They all do that Sir!"

That makes sense because my wife's M-B does something similar but not as loud as my Jag.

Hi All.

it has been in to the dealer and it was found to be the bonnet catch and rubber dampers needed slight adjustment. This was causing a noise to travel through to the cabin. All fixed now and the noise has vanished
