When I am driving over a speed bump a kind of klonking noise is coming from the front of the vehicle. This noise also happens when going up hill and as soon as I accelerate at 1st or 2nd gear . In other words the noise happens when the front suspension travels downwards.
Recently I have taken the vehicle to the workshop for 1st oil service and they could see any problem at the front axle/suspension.
Anyone who has experineced this or a similar problem?
:?

my shocks make like a tapping noise they always have, renault say "characteristic" theres no problem as such I guess. I did have loud bangs under braking though and that was chassis bolts

Mine makes exactly the same noise but saying that so did my 182 so i think it is a Reno thing , although saying that there was a mod on the strut tops for the 182 ...

At a guess it sounds like you may have a loose subframe bolt? Is it a "deep" noise or very metallic?

Paul
Which noise relates to which problem Paul ?.
