If you have a manual transmission, then you also a have a freewheel type alternator pulley. It will make some noise as the engine idle speed changes. Mine was making a lot of clicking, and made a screaming noise as it coasted after revving the engine. Replacing it solved the problem.

Hey, did you figure out what was the cause of the knocking sound? I'm facing the same problem
