Noticed my Abarth has started making this noise recently, same as the videos and descriptions in this thread, drivers side front when going over bumps. Looks like I'll be called the dealership later today...
From what I have read there have been three revisions of the jounce bumpers now. The other two common front end noises are due to the intermediate steering shaft and strut top hats/mounts (might have the term slightly wrong).Update from my case.
Went to the dealer today and they fixed the problem. Apparently it was due to whats called "Jounce Bumpers" which were loose on the struts. They corrected them and secured them into place.
It's crazy they are now on the third revision of jounce bumpers. Hope this last time they got it right.Jounce stops are moving all over the place according to my dealer's tech. Ordering the parts in, should be in by friday. The problem really only appears every winter, so its likely it'll show up again next year if it hasn't been fully addressed with the new jounce stops.
I have needed new jounce bumpers ever since I got the Sport. The Abarth has been perfect. Haven't been to the dealer yet to get them replaced, figured there's no point as they are pretty much uselessIt's crazy they are now on the third revision of jounce bumpers. Hope this last time they got it right.
Same here, weather warmed up and clunk is goneGood question. Standard warranty is four years so not a lot of 500s are out of warranty yet I guess.
Mine is a 2012 meaning I can get the jounce bumpers replaced two more times. This winter in NE has been rough but I don't think it's a function of bad roads per se. My 500 Sport is garaged and was only out a few times this winter yet the left side jounce bumper is gone again. I think it's a function of extended sub-freezing weather, then if you drive over a pebble it's enough to cause it. Whereas once the weather warms up, the resulting spring potholes don't cause a reoccurrence.
I'll schedule yet another appointment to have the jounce bumpers replaced. Only 10K miles on the car but third winter, third failure. I'll probably be selling the car this year so I won't find out how much this would cost out of warranty. It's amazing they haven't done a recall.
CPR or cyclone-33 (Ron Christian) makes a solution for this issue. He never gets on this forum though and doesn't have a website.Anyone with a 2014 car have this. I have a clunk, almost hollow sort of sound over potholes and speedbumps on my right hand front. Studio checked all the bolts, said the universal ' yeah, they all do that' and its still there.
Wondering if maybe the top mount, if it hasn't been updated my also be the culprit, Only 7000kms and 11mths old
