Re: 2004 1.2 Clio Dynamique Issues
If the steering is much lighter than it was originally it may be there is a power steering fault. I take the tyre pressures have been checked.
The thumping or banging could be a faulty exhaust bracket or a weak engine mount.
As you say you need to take it to a garage that is prepared to are willing and know what they are doing.
