Noise/Rattle. But not when braking

Hey all!!

So I got this noise driving me mad. When going on uneven surfaces or hit bumps there will be like a ratteling/clunking(not metallic though) noise.
Only from from the front left wheel. But with brakes applied there's no noise at all....
Changed pads some 4 months ago and all fine until now...
Checked that the caliper mount bolts are tight and they are...
Checked sway bar links and all is tight...

If I hit the caliper with my hand, from inside and out, it does hit the rotor and makes a sound... Could it be that? But bolts are tight??
What could it be??

Re: Noise/Rattle. But not when braking

I've been chasing something similar in my 2011 WK2 for 6+ months now. Replaced much of what you have, and all of the plastic fender/bumper clips. Mine rattles while braking though, too. Your issue might be the heat shield others in the forum have been able to pin-point.
