Default Clink, clank, clunk

When driving in stealth and Iím slowing down to maybe 1 to 4 mph (but I donít stop all the way), as I let off the brake thereís like a slight thump or a clunking sound coming from somewhere in the front engine area. The noise does not last very long at all (like a fraction of a second). Iíve also found that if I continue slowing down all the way to a stop, right as all forward momentum ends, I hear the same noise. It doesnít happen at faster speeds. It almost sounds a LITTLE bit like the noise you hear when the ICE kicks on.

Any idea what this could be, or anything I should check? Thanks for any help.

Really...? The noise was coming from the front of the car??


I'm beginning to wonder if it might be something to do with the suspension, but I have no idea at this point. I'm not sure if this is something I could take the car to a non-Fisker tech to have checked out.


Any ideas?

Default differential

90% it's a differential issue. There is a rework on the differential that needs to be performed to make sure everything is OK in there.

if u want to give me a call i can explain what's going on. 9492593804.

Thank you

Alex
