Re: scenic 2 knocking

You really need the engine off and steering lock off.

This vid will give you a bit of advice.
You only need to shake the wheel a very small amount when checking for play in track rod inner joint and track rod ends.

You can also check for play in the steering column if you get someone to shake the steering wheel a small amount while you feel the steering column under dash and at the steering rack connection.
With the wheels on the ground is best for this.

Diagnosing a knock from a video is a bit difficult with the amount of joints on the steering system.
