Help please knocking noise.

Hi guys looking for some advice, I get a loud knocking noise coming from the front left of the car when under hard acceleration. car is a 53 plate 172 cup.

Good chance it could be the engine mounts, possibly steering rack related?

Maybe check the suspension/top mounts

.. i have changed the mounts all round and it still knocks under hard acceleration; common fault that you have to get used to :(

A thing that seems to cure it is to loosen up the two top enginemounts and pull the engine forward and retighten. this will get rid of the engine hitting the subframe..temorarily

people should tail it a bit on testdrive when buying it because they all have it... wo'nt be as much of a surprise then

had the same problem a month ago. knocking under hard acceleration in 1st &2nd. replaced the engine mount under the battery holder and it's gone. Hope this helps.
