Lower arms have gone by the sounds of it. Mine too :(

?14.99 each off of ebay, bout ?100 to fit usually better to do it yourself :)

Other than that it is your shocks playing up.. are you lowered? standard shocks?

at what sort of speeds does this knocking start, if you only get it when you are moving i would look at things like wheel bearings. have you bumped the tyre up a curb and knocked it out of shape, stuff like that.

if its a constant knocking it could be your anti-roll bar bushes and drop links. des and myself have had problems with links failing, must be a weakness in the design. mine was knocking for friggin ages before i sorted it :lol:

Where is the sound coming from?
here some ideas:
Give the engine a good rock by hand, see if it knocks first,
Lower arms, I think has been said but is a good idea to check.

If you can jack the car up then go for it, spin the wheels up each in turn (by hand) see if you can hear any bearing noise.

Knocking, well, could be coming from anywhere really, if you don't have a clue best drop it into a garage for a diagnosis.

Paul.

Dont take him out, open the boot, smack him in the face (again) and carry on driving. Should stop the knocking sound for a while anyways :)

:lol:

Somethin I had on me old 306 when i bought it was:
The car would bump as i went along, drove it like that for a good two months, even doin speeds of 80mph..

Decided I had enough of it and looked at everything, turned out the n/s/r tyre had a bulge bigger than... well.
Was pretty dangerous now i think about it.

Glad you got it sorted.. or am i?.. less work for renault :insanity:
