Knocking and Creaking Clio 172


I'm hoping somebody on here can point me in the right direction with some noises I am getting from my 172 which have gradually got worse over the last 2 months..

I know without you physically hearing the noises, it is difficult to diagnose, but I could really do with some pointers to save on labour time in the garage.

First one is a knocking/thud noise when pulling away slowly on clutch, both in 1st and reverse. Would this be an engine mount or the dog leg mount?

Second one is a creaking noise - this only happens on full right hand lock? Would this be the top mounts or something else? Someone suggested using spacers on the top mounts to stop them rubbing on the bodywork?

Car is a 2003, 107k miles.

Any help/pointers would be greatly appreciated
