Re: scenic 2 knocking

You really need the engine off and steering lock off.

This vid will give you a bit of advice.
You only need to shake the wheel a very small amount when checking for play in track rod inner joint and track rod ends.

You can also check for play in the steering column if you get someone to shake the steering wheel a small amount while you feel the steering column under dash and at the steering rack connection.
With the wheels on the ground is best for this.

Diagnosing a knock from a video is a bit difficult with the amount of joints on the steering system.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
