I just had my car mot'd and the test guy advised that I will need to
get the antiroll bar replaced soon - there is a knocking sound as I am
driving - could this be it - is it something that I should get done
urgently - is it a big job ??
Thanks for any answers !

Sounds very likely. Usually it's the bushes that go, leaving the ARB
slopping around and making a knocking noise, especially when you first
accelerate and around corners.
It's not a huge job and if you like your car (read: want to keep it for a
while longer and want it to corner like it's on rails), try PU bushes. You
get much more driver feedback, too.
Thanks for the info Paul. Is this something I can replace myself or
will I need to take it to a garage to get it done ?
Will it cause any serious damage if I leave it for a while ???
Thanks for your help with this, Im not really mechanically minded !

damage, who knows as we are only assuming that the problem is the ARB
bushes, if nothing else you need to have the cause confirmed and if
you can't do it yourself you need someone who can to *look* at the
