    Default Clunk from driver side front wheel?

    My 09 plate vectra sri has developed a clunk over the last 2 weeks. At first I thought it was maybe the tyre catching the recently moved mudflaps as it sounds like the noise that happens when you tap the plastic lining inside the wheel arch. It's not this after I stopped the car as soon as it happened this morning to check.
    It only happens when turning to the right slowly it doesn't happen at speed & it doesnt do i regularly. It was loud enough for a work mate who was standing in car park at work to hear it when I turned into the car park last week.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be maybe strut mount bearing or even a cv joint?

    I've booked car into dealers on Saturday morning to get it checked out. Hopefully if they find anything it'll be replaced under warranty as the cars not 3 years old yet.

    Does anyone know if a broken spring or whatever it is thats causing this will be replaced under warranty on the car? It's an 09 plate.
