clonking scenic

hi, anyone got any idea what this could be.
when i brake at low speeds (parking/reversing) i get a clonking noise from the front, this happens about 90% of the time and only when im braking.

the car passed its mot like this afew weeks ago with no advisories so im guessing its nothing serious but would like to get it sorted.

2005 grand scenic.

Re: clonking scenic

it might be a worn ball end joint... not enough free play to fail but still give that noise...

mine was like that... failed MOT on it....

replaced worn joint and now no clonking noise when reversing parking etc...
