Question about 2004 Renault Sportwagon
There is a good chance that one of the CV joints are worn and needs to be replaced. If it's the CV Joint, try to have it replaced soon as possible. Once the joint fails, your going to have to get the vehicle towed which is just another expense. Good luck and hope this helps.

Sounds like your outer CV joint on the drivers side is worn. If so not really a DIY job. When shaft is removed you will loose g/box oil. plus hub has to be partially removed. Then the joint removed from shaft. Big job. would recommend going to see your local CV shaft shop.

Sounds like you have air in your steering system. I would start by looking for any leaks on your steering system like hose to fitting crimps, steering pump, etc. Check your steering fluid level to make sure it is full and also look for bubbles on the dip stick. If everything looks good, start the vehicle and turn the wheels all of the way to the left and then to the right. Do this while the vehicle is in park and repeat at least 5 times. This will work out any air in your steering system. If the problem persists then the power steering pump may need to be replaced.

This sounds like there is something worn in the steering. If it is a rack & Pinion steering the rack could be worn out. It could also be the CV joints to the front hubs. Regardless it does not sound safe. Take it to an independent mechanic, NOT THE DEALER, and have it inspected. There typically is not charge to inspect/identify the problem.

This could be any number of things. It could be your CV axle going bad, your tie rod joint has gone bad, your lower ball joint has gone bad. More than likely it will be your CV axle. What you need to look for is rips on any of the boots for these parts. The one that has the rip will more than likely be your problem. Just check for grease coming out of any of these parts and you will find your culprit because it has dried up and is causing the knocking sound. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!
