Hi phil,
I get the same problems with my Clio but my grinding noise in reverse is constant. It sounds terrible. Did u find out what the problem was after all and how much was it to fix? Did u have a terrible creak in ur steering too? If the car was stationary or manouvering? Just a constant loud creak when you turn the wheel left or right?

Hope u reply, I cud do with a few ideas to help.

hi this sound like the problem i had, do me a faver and drive the car on full lock on diferent gradients in first gear, i had this problem in reverse and on full lock. this problem was down to my passenger side driveshaft. if these are the syptoms your are getting like a grinding noise for a couple of seconds then i can garentee this is your problem. you will have to replace the driveshaft and yoke in the side of the gear box but dont worry went a say gear box this is not a big job at all. on the clio the driveshaft is different to most cars as the end of the driveshaft is inside the gear box and is held in by a circlip. you can do it by yourself and buy a recondition driveshaft from ebay or breakersyard and the yoke wich is the end of the driveshaft from reanault 60 quid if you need a step by step guide on changing the driveshaft i will send it to you it will take you about 2 hours. my email is hope this helps please keep me updated
