The car has 2 belts. 1 for the alternator. the other for the power steering. the sound you heard could have been the belt snapping . check under the bonnet on the driver side.

Flapping noise seems to come from drivers side like something caught and slapping against the road


look for loose mud flaps. check under the front of the vehicle as there is a plastic panel from under the radiator back to the front cross member. This is light weight plastic and held in position by small plastic plugs/clips Hitting something on the road (small bird-- clump of rag or parking over a tire stop in the parking centre )will break it and it hangs down and flaps as you drive.

Power steering Renault Clio


I could be wrong, but I believe that model of clio is fitted with electric power steering. The electric motor is fitted inside the car on the steering column. If there is a problem with the steering it will need to be checked by a renault dealer. The power steering motor thermal cut out is a common issue.

If it materializes when the engine is under load it could be the fuel you are using. Try a higher grade fuel. Also a common cause of engine rattle is from the exhaust manifold head Shields. These are made of sheet metal and rust out causing what you have described.
