Re: knocking noise in steering
About the knock....
I had a similar problem on my Scenic 2 for about 2 years. It really clunked badly at either end of the steering wheel movement. It passed MOTs OK. Three mechanics looked at it and couldn't find the problem. I know for a fact that two of them said they checked the steering rack bolts! Most said the rack may be worn or have damaged teeth.
Eventually, on a service, the mechanic checked the steering rack more carefully than the others must have done and found a couple of loose bolts. He tightened them up and hey-presto. Solved.
It may be that simple... Fingers crossed for you.
