Everytime I come into my driveway or have full lock on my steering or any eneven terrain I get a knock/crunch/pop sound.


Its definitely not my Axles, i have the XC90 bolts. Its done this since day 1, and its quite annoying.

It may be my subframe bushing, but Ive gone around with a prybar and can't hear any noises from the bushings.

I'd like to try this TSB but cant figure out where exactly on the car this picture is from. Has anyone tried this? Guess I'll be removing my bumper cover again.



Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.


Thanks

Can you fit the pry bar and screw driver under the bumper cover?

i doubt it. you might be able to poke at it but wont have enough swing to pry it.

it only takes 15 min to remove anyway..

this definitely solved my issue... almost perfect now :)

i lubed up my headlight wipers while i had em off, they were getting a bit stiff

how did you figure out how to remove the bumper? (specific thread, vida, etc?)

I have been hunting down a rattle in my front end for the past 20-25k miles and it is driving me broke. I have replaced damn near everything besides ball joints and inner tie rods. Removing the bumper will knock out two birds with one stone since i need to replace my washer pump too.
