clonking laguna!

I have a Laguna 2.0 on an 05 plate and it's been clonking underneath now for over 6months. Renault say there is nothing wrong with my car after inspecting it 4 times. Yet, clonk clonk clonk it goes. Not every day, but when it does, (recently every couple of days), it is usually from cold. After driving for 20 mins or so it normally stops. It is loud, sounds like heavy metal scraping and clonking about under my feet somewhere. If I rock the steering wheel from left to right whilst driving slowly it goes CLONK CLONK as I swing the car from left to right. A few times when I have breaked sharply there is a forward metalic sliding with a sudden knock as if something shunted forward, then it all stops. It's driving me mad. Also the gears get very crunchy. Particularly from 1st to 2nd. It has also jumped out of reverse now on several occassions. RENAULT SAY THEY CAN NOT FAULT THIS CAR AND HAVE NOW BANNED ME FROM ALL DEALERS IN THE AREA BECAUSE THEY CONSIDER ME A NUISANCE!! Does anyone know what this is? Where I can take it for an inspection? Renault will not discuss this issue further with me until I present them with a private, independant inspection report. (NO I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER RENAULT)
