Scenic (2002) 1.9 Dci Knocking from front end
My 2002 Scenic 1.9 Dci makes a knocking noise from the front offside, especially noticeable at low speed and particularly when I back out of my drive. The drive is on a slope so the car is not in gear when backing out.
There is no difference whether the wheels are on lock or not,
There is no apparent play in the outer track rod ends or the ball joints.
The front shock absorbers were renewed late last year.
With the offside front of the car jacked up, if I hold the wheel in the 'quarter to three' position there is slight movement of the steering rack. Is this normal or could it be the problem perhaps?
The steering itself feels fine, no wheel wobble even at 80mph.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give
