Default Mystery clunk!

I have a mystery clunk in my car, when I accelerate something seems to slide and goes "clunk". It seems to be passenger side and somewhere about the bottom of the door line.
I thought of something in the door pocket so cleared them out.
Strange thing is I would have expected that when I braked it would go the other way, but it doesn't.
Any clues would be gratefully received while I keep looking, I don't think it is serious because it does not seem to affect the car or the driving.

Could it possibly be the front wishbone rear bush that has failed?
Worth jacking car up and have a look and see if there is any free play in the suspension.

Might be worth jacking up, as suggested, then undo and retighten the wheel nuts to see if there is any lateral movement, which again, may indicate the wishbone bush failing. I only this noticed on one of mine when I changed a wheel.

Kim's nearside wishbone inner bush is on its way out, but I don't hear what the OP describes.
Maybe someone's kid put a marble in the floor when the carpet was out?
Just guessing

Right, I now realise that if I want to see what an idiot looks like, all I need to do is look in a mirror.
Called in to my friendly mechanic and explained the problem, "I'll have a run with you" he said. "good" said I.
Starts off, accelerate "clunk!"
He reaches forward and pulls out a de-icer can from glove box.
" Try it now " He says.
Accelerate, silence. "Bluddyhell" says I.
Completely forgot about the glove box.

It comes with age, well that’s my excuse. At least you have got it sorted out with no cost to you.

You need to fit a glovebox CD changer. That way there's no room for anything else!

I removed that when I had the Navall 2 fitted.
