Default Clunk on set off V70 D2 2013

Hi All

Hoping for some help on a mystery clunk/jerk when setting off, both cold and warm. Thought this was a gearbox issue at first but my auto box is smooth up and down and has had an oil flush recently to try and resolve.

I am thinking of engine or gearbox mounts as a potential for this clunk, I am no expert in car mechanics by any means. Has anyone experienced similar problems? The car is the 1600 D2 and has approx 105k miles on the clock.

Any thoughts/guidance would be really appreciated.

What is the lowest cost place to investigate first - I am praying this is not a flywheel issue!

Cheers

If its only when you first pull away after engine start, its entiely normal and to do with the traction control setting itself I think. Thats a barely audible clunk, only happens once. If it happens at other times, it'll be something else, possibilities endless but engine mounts, bushes, drive shafts, even brake pads all possible. HTH.

Appreciate that, thanks. Is the Traction control adjustable? It does feel a little like the front wheels are fighting wheel spin actually. It only happens when pulling away from a standing start, but not just the first time from engine start.

No, not adjustable. My D5 does spin easily, the traction control doesn't seem particularly good at controlling it. If the clunks happening more than once, it's something else by sounds of it.

Check for things like loose hub/drive shaft nut wheel nuts and that any brakes are not binding as sticking pads will cause an audible clunk when the friction is broken as itwould when pulling away from rest.

Default Where do I start!!?

Thanks all for your thoughts, a trip to the local mechanic is in order with a few of your suggestions. Hopefully it will be straightforward.
