    My UP! has done 16k miles and I have recently noticed a "clonk" from the front left suspension when going over potholes or speed bumps. It is unusual in that it is much worse in very wet weather. There is no noise from the front right suspension. I have taken the wheel off and checked for obviously slack rubber bushes but it all seems in good order. Has anybody else with one of these cars had this problem and if so what was the fix? Many thanks.

    You will find that the noise is coming from either a failed drop link ball joint or anti roll bar ball joint its very common failure on the up.
