after a few minutes it will start and acts like it is doing fine but it is doing it everyday we drive it. it started about a week ago

I had a splash gruard to fall of and after it was taking off and part reordered by shop. I heard a knocking ssound coming from the left side of the car by the front quarter panel. it stops and starts depending on how fast it goes. It has been hit on that side but the repair shop said it wasl all good to go. Can you tell me were you think this noise my be coming from. Scared to drive it and no money for big repair bill.
