Front driver side clanking/rattling noise

Hi, I first heard the clanking noise from the front driver side wheel/suspension about a month ago when I was driving on an uneven surface. The clanking noise has been getting worse since then. I did some research and found that wheel bearing might be the problem, so I replaced the wheel bearing along with the hub. After i changed the wheel bearing the clanking noise is still there, any idea what it could be?

Here's a link to a video:

Thank you.

Maybe the strut, or one of the suspension bushings up front. Sway bar bushing, etc.

Hello,

Did you find a reason for your issue? I have similar rattling noise in my 6. Service suggests It could be front struts, but they are not sure about it.

Regards,
Bart

So i changed the strut mount and tension strut arms on my car. The clunking went away, hope it helps!
