So I had that annoying driver side front end knock/rattle people hear in their cars. Makes you nuts trying to figure it out.

Took it to the dealer and they knew just where to look. Strut mount and isolator were both shot. Car is a 2012 XF with 80k miles.

Dealer replaced the strut mount and isolator for 545.00 out the door.

The car is now super quiet and drives like new. Front end is much tighter and steering feels better too.

I guess I didn’t realize how much it had changed, from the time the mount and isolator went bad.

You can look under your hood, and see if the top of the strut is sitting straight or leaning to one side. It shouldn’t be leaning. You can also see if the material is deteriorated around it.

If it is worn. Replace it. Don’t wait. You will be happy you did.
