Hi.

Quite possibly ii its the bearing on top of front shock..

it gets sticky.. and holds top of spring tight

As you steer.. the bottom of spring twists

Itll only twist a little then pushes the top bearing round.. often with a BOING from the spring

Common issue on later puntos

Mareas.. I had 2 jtd weekends..

Re: Knocking noise while turning

Look in the Grande punto section..

Same basic strut design..
But less trim to remove on a marea

Have a look at the forums GUIDES

You have to get to them..

Might be worth spraying WD 40

Down into them.. from under the bonnet.

Small holes in the turretctoos where they are bolted

Even if it only helps for a week..
you will know that was the problem

Re: Knocking noise while turning

Cool man hey Thank you so much for the information buddy I can't thank you enough. I also suspected the lower balljoint on the wish bone or the driveshaft as they can pull when turning if they naff. This car has had me scratching my head for weeks lmao
