    Hi

    I have noticed a really bad knocking noise over the past few days, this got worse this evening when i was putting the car in reverse it was vibrating through the car.

    It sounds like its coming from the back drivers side wheels. At first I thought it was my exhaust but checked this and everything is fine

    Does anyone have any ideas what it may be??

    Thanks to anyone that can help :)

    Best get it checked at a garage.
    Does the hand brake work okay? Is the wheel sitting in the wheel arch right? Measure from the top of the tyre to the wheel arch ( see how many fingers fit in the gap). Is it the same both sides?
    My thoughts are a problem with the suspension or seized brake drum.
