Welcome Matt!

The clunking is a well known issue in 172s, but I don't recall hearing of a 182 with this ailment... in 172s it was related to a number of factors - some people found that the clunking was from a loose exhaust manifold, others found it to be the front struts that required a modification to the towers, and as 'roo mentioned, it may also be a loose mount. Being a 182, I'm tipping it may be the latter as Renault seemed to have cured many of the 172's ailments by the time the 182 was launched.


Anyways, as for mods, there are plenty of topics for you to swot up on - get reading buddy! Enjoy your stay.

Cheers, Dish.

Welcome to the forum, Matt!


Great to have another Brissy newbie around :D I hope that we'll be able to all meet for a drive day in the not too distant future. As you've already seen we're in the process of organising things already.


I'm sure you will really enjoy hanging around here. I've only been here a couple of weeks and I've learned a massive amount about my Clio already. Everyone has been really helpful and willing to give advice. I'm sure you'll find everything you need to know right here :)
