2003 Cooper S plug under dash?

Hi

Found a plug under drivers side dash on a length of cable looks like it runs up behind the radio. It looks like a cat 5 network socket like one on a wireless broadband router. Any ideas.

Also it's a one owner full history 44k on the clock but the clutch is heavy to push down. Could it be on its last legs?

Also as we drive it's got a knocking noise from the back, on rough roads. Just can't find it. Sounds like its in the boot but checked that already.

Cheers

No idea on the other bits - sorry, but could the knocking be the exhaust loose?

A heavy clutch pedal is typical of 1st Gen MCS models.

Cheers for that, I wondered about the exhaust although it feels tight. Heat shield maybe if there is one

I had same on rattle on my 09 Hardtop, those rubber screw in bumpers that are on the rear hatch (if there still there) keeps the noise down. I lost one somewhere. So I purchased another one! I check them every once in a while to make sure they not unscrewing them selves again
