Re: Front End Clunk
mine developed a clung at about 15000Ks when i went over a speed hump or a sharp bump in the road surface like a change from hot mix to ashfelt.
it was the bolts holding the alloy front cross member to the body frame were just loose enought to let the cross member move a fraction and make the noise.
tightened all the bolt up about 1/4 - 1/2 turn and it has never happened again in 51000k.
mechanic mate who used to work for mercedes in tassie said that the late model benz`s have the same problem if the bolts are not tightened at the first service.
might be worth checking
