Hi folks. Just joined the forum and did some searching for an answer to my problem.

My girlfriends 2009 Versa has a clunk. It's grown worse over the past few weeks. My first thought was that it's suspension related. It's not. I just had it up on jacks attempting to find the source of the noise and it still clunks. That should eliminate suspension noises as the culprit.

Forcing the noise is easy now. At a stop release the brake, clunk, apply brake, clunk, release, clunk, apply, clunk.

I've checked calipers, CV shafts, and engine mounts. On the subject of engine mounts though, does this look normal? It seemed a bit excessive to me. This is the brake-release-brake method described above.

The sound is very audible inside the cabin, but less so outside. I was lying under the car while the girlfriend forced the sound and I couldn't hear anything while she said she could still hear it.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm a pretty capable mechanic but I'm stumped on this one. I'm beginning to wonder if it's not transmission related...

Thanks guys. The upper torque mount is cracked, but it was not completely torn free as I've seen while searching the web. I didn't notice any cracks in the lower one though, but I may check again.

The sound is definitely a dead sound coming from the tunnel area. I was able to hear it pretty good when I put my head down by the shifter, though it was not felt through the shifter in normal operation (not exactly holding the shifter in an automatic all the time). I may have a feel next time I'm in there.
