Hi,

Presume you've checked out the tyres / balancing / tracking / etc :eusa-think:

Clunking sound could just the the "normal" groan that most cars make when you do a full lock :eusa-think:
Full lock is not good for any car and you should avoid it as much as possible.

Good luck, although with the steering rack already being replaced and three further Dealer visits, it's not looking too hopeful.

:cry:

Sounds like accident damage of course as this should not be happening at all.History check needed. :eusa-shhh:
Despite three temporary bans and various warnings, I continued to behave like a dick and got banned permanently.

Is it possible that it's the suspension that is making the noise?

As in the bushes that other people have had problems with?

Just a thought.

Like Chris says, front suspension top mounts on mine were replaced by Peugeot on a "notice" to their dealers. I didn't get any pulling one way or the other, but I did get some distinct "clunking" noises, especially over small road imperfections, but weirdly, not over speed bumps at low speeds.

Might be worth mentioning if you are taking it in to a Pug dealer for investigation.
