Loose "link arm" in a 2016 Holden Colorado 7 Trailblazer

Asked by John Murray

I have a 2016 Holden Colorado 7 Trailblazer limited edition. It's less than 12 months old with 15,000km on the clock.

The vehicle developed a knocking sound underneath the vehicle about three weeks ago and has been rapidly getting worse, especially when turning left and when going over bumps.

I took it to the dealer and after inspection he advised us that it was a loose "link arm" and that he had encountered a few of these in recent times. He further stated that he believed that they were not being tensioned properly during assembly.

The dealer re-tensioned the 'link arm" as a temporary measure and has ordered new parts and will replace the "link arms" when parts arrive next week.

If I'm experiencing this problem, obviously other are as well. Just thought i would let people know of this fault.

Thanks John. While nobody likes visiting a dealer for warranty repairs, it looks like Holden is looking after you. No doubt this will instil confidence for anyone else with a similar issue.
