I have a 2001 1.6 rapier that has just under 50000 miles on it , recently theres a clunking noise started coming from the front suspension when i go over bumps/potholes in the road. The noise sounds like metal clunking and it seems to come from just to the left of centre towards the passenger side , theres also a jangling sound aswell.

I have a another problem with the brakes , the brakes have never been the best but they are really bad now , you have to push the pedal down all the way just to slow down and the pedal is really soft.
About 3 months ago they were the same so i had the master cylinder replaced and had new discs/pads fitted to the front as i only had the rear ones done last year. It was fine for a while but they are slowly getting worse and the pedal is getting really soft again.

Im not a mechanic or anything so will have to take it to the garage , just seeing if i can get an idea of whats at fault.

Hi. The noise is prob from one of the anti roll bar vertical struts. I had exactly the same problem. FIXED for less than 50 pounds at my local tyre place rather than the 200 quoted by someone else!

hi,,as said it could be a drop link.
it could also be a broken coil spring with you having a jangling noise??

as for the brakes,have you had to top up the fluid at all?i'm wondering if you have a slight weapage or air in the system?
