Thank you for the replies everyone. you guys have been an outstanding help and saved me from bankruptcy I have found the second joint, replaced the bolt, greased with some penetrating oil sprayed and then used some of that EP2 grease all over, put so much grease and oil on now the car smells of it... finally, knocking gone, am at peace!

Did not manage to get to the bottom one as it got pretty late today but the access is not great but will try as there is SLIGHT knocking on there too.
