The steering wheel is making a clunking sound when I lock it tight. For example when turning into a parking space. It only happens when the wheel is being turned a tight angle. And then in reverse when the turn is released.

Would there be something up with the steering column?

The clacks may indicate low power steering fluid or damage to a component in the steering column. These issues tend to progress over time, making the vehicle harder to maneuver as the problem develops.

The two most important safety systems in a vehicle are steering and braking. One of two just wont do. Your issue could be anything from ball joints to steering mechanical components, pump, steering gear and connections to a steering wheel issue. Dont wait, take it to a front end specialist .

I got a job done on it. Mechanic said it was perished spring units that assist the steering of the wheels.
Forked out 250 quid for a fix, but the problem is back again. Not sure it made any improvement tbh.

Called up the mechanic to tell him problem still there. He said he only did the job on front right. And that front left might need same fix.

'Might'

I'm not feeling too confident this money is well spent.
