I have an A class merc 56 reg. 47000 miles When reversing

Resolved Question:

I have an A class merc 56 reg. 47000 miles
When reversing from the garage and the car is cold I have to bear to the right.
At that time there is a distinct knock that appears to come from the steering
mechanism. The local garage have checked the steering for me and say that all
is well.
Any ideas please.

Hello ,
The knocking when wheels are fully turned out can be caused by worn CV joints on the driveshaft. The workshop should hear this knocking, to determine which of the joints is making noise. It can be brought forth by having the wheels fully turned out and then taking off quickly.
