Welcome to the forum Mark shrimpo,

Have a look at this topic in the tips section. It describes a solution to a similar knocking sound.

Had a look at picture on the link, and went and had a look. I found it to be the lemforder ball and socket I literally pushed the ball part out off the socket. So going to order some more and replace them both.

Thanks again ;-)

Ah yes - for such a relatively inexpensive component (and the ease of changing them), they certainly make one hell of a racket when they are worn out!
