hi can anyone help

I have recently noticed a rumble/rattle on my passengerside
front of the car.
I took it to a tyre dealer who told me he could not find anyproblem tho
he said he could hear the problem.
it happens at low speed, I have not hit any potholes as the tyre bloke
said the tracking etc was spot on, nothing loose underneath either
It is intermitant, strangely on more audible on certain surfaces of road.

it is a Peugeot 2008reg km64zyr

cheers

Ive had the same problem, took my car to an independant garage, they couldn't diagnose the problem, took it to peugeot for diagnostics (£75) they confirmed its both front shocks that have failed, my car has only done 26000 miles and is out of warranty, they quoted me £680, i am absolutely fuming that this part is regularly failing prematurely on 2008’s and peugeot are trying to charge us for replacement of a sub standard part, i have phoned the complaints department and explained my case and logged a claim with them to get this sorted, ideally i want a free replacement especially die to the very low milage of the car and the fact they have now changed the part number, there seems to be a lot of cars with this issue, i have has a lot of cars over the years and never heard of shocks failing so early, peugeot something needs to be done with build quality issues like this!!, let me know id anyone else is having this problem, phil

Phil, as i said on another thread the chocks on my 2016 facelifted 2008 are Bilsteins, I checked on EuroCarParts and at the time a pair were £123 delivered, my local mobile mechanic would fit for £30 a side. So that's £400 cheaper than your dealer quote.

In all honesty am surprised that people still take their car to a main dealer for mechanical work when it's outside of warranty. :(

You probably know that you'll need your alignment done after the shocks are fitted, please don't take that to the $tealer and instead use this site to find someone local to you

im 100% not paying dealer prices, because nobody could diagnose the problem i went to the dealer to find out what was going on, i have spoke to the claims team and waiting for a responce, the only way i will use the dealer if they do it for free or a cut price
