Re: Intermitent Clunking from N/S front, on Hard right hand turn

Still not got to the bottom of this, but the car has just passed a MOT... I have now got it booked in to a local garage for them to have a look, but I'm not holding my breath that they will be able to find anything (though it would seem that something must be amiss)? There's been some very cold morn...

Intermitent Clunking from N/S front, on Hard right hand turn

On coldish mornings, when I first drive my 2003 406 HDi Estate (160,000miles) out from it's over night parking place and turn hard right on full lock, it has been making pretty awful noises and judders from the N/S front.
