Hi All.
Just bought a 2009 cooper s convertible for my good lady. (Private sale)
At low/med speed say turning into/out of parking space, there is a very notable knocking from the below. You can feel it through the floor.

Any experts hazard a guess ? There is 31K on the clock.

Many Thanks in advance.

I think the noise is coming from one (or both) CV joints on the drive shafts.
It tends to be more noticeable on full lock but not in a straight line. It used to be possible to renew the CV joints but I expect you have to renew the entire drive shaft nowadays.
