Knocking!!! Front drivers side??? Shaft? hub?

  Clio 172 + 4 others!
When i go round a left bend over 20mph ive got a real bad knocking on the front hub area, drivers side!!

It happens when i turn the corner when im accelarating and also if i go around the corner in neutral.

If im in a car park and turn around tight, slowly etc it doesnt do anything, So i dont think its a CV joint.

Its sounds like the whole wheel is shaking and only does it on left bends!!! :mad:

Mrs wont drive the car now as its getting really bad.

its a clio 172 2002.
Sounds stupid but first thing to check is wheel nuts are tight.

We get no end of people with this problem @ work and thats all it is.

Other than that umm.......

Anyone else?! lol.

Yes might not be the case but when i had my pug it dis the same thing and it was a crack in the axel it still safe but you wont be able to see it but if you take it to a garage they will be able to find it. it can also be the exhaust is not fitted correct. £400 for cracked axel. Hope this helps
