Renault laguna 1.9dci 2004 estate shudder

Have a very bad shudder and knocking on nearside front drive shaft when on full lock and turning left,when removed all pin bearings loose. changed for a new one, the gear box is new.after replacing today it seemed ok but again on turning left on full lock and accelerating a slight double knock, not as bad but wondering what could be the cause. car is one owner and 57000 in great condition.
any thoughts would be welcome thanks

I have a strange sound that sounds like im running on a flat tyre coming from my front nearside wheel arch. There are no obvious issues with the drive gear or suspension and the tracking has just been

Does the noise only occur at or above a specific speed? I'm hoping for your sake that one of the plastic fender liners or under carriage covers have come loose and are flapping in the wind or against the wheel when you pick up speed? If a tight turn instigates it then my thinking is that the dislodged cover is caught by the wheel at full turn (the clunk) and then flaps and rubs while you drive?

Remove and replace Renault Laguna 11 Estate rear n/s light unit

I cahnged mine yesterday and it's very easy. .There is another bolt located towards the top front of the light unit which can be accessed from inside the boot. There is a hole is packed with a sponge filler. Once you unscrew the bolt then the whole unit should pull off. When you get your new unit you should be able to see where the fixing point is. Hope this helps.
