Re: Renault Megane Scenic suspension noise?

Megan Scenic 1.6 Sport 2000.

It's most likely coming from ur rear suspension/shocks which might've snapped especially if the noise is quite loud over bumps. Had mine replaced a few months ago and the exact same thing happened to me, my rear shocks had snapped because the suspension had gone completely, it was that bad the mechanic had never seen it like mine before. lol
