  renault clio 1,2 16v
Hello everyone i have rencenly purchased my first car (renault clio 1.2 16v)
When i am parked and turn my steering wheel left or right i get loud clunking sound and also in a particular spot when turning.
I have taken my car to a garage so they could have a look and give me a diagnostic on the noise they said that it was a broken n/s coil spring
i have replaced all coil springs front and rear i have changed my driveshafts o/s and n/s and all tyres however no change tie rods seem fine can someone help me please!?

  Whichever has fuel
Track rod ends
Ball joints
Bottom arms (wish bones)
Steering rack....

It could be anything. I'd personally take it to another garage. One that can actually be bothered to diagnose a fault properly.

Strut top mount bearing buggered, the noise is the coil spring jumping and probably the cause of the spring to break in the first place

Having the same problem with mine at the moment. A friend noticed that the rack was moving. So I think mine is that. Will let you know when Ive done my epas

As I said I've never investigated as I didn't think much of it, be great to find a fix though if there is something up.
