Could be a front wishbone, either side, or anti roll bar bush knackered.
You can have visual inspection of these, but to really check you will need to take a metal bar to them and see if there is any movement in them.

If you want to bring it to me, I will have a check, and if it's something garage has left loose, i will give you photographic evidence to take to garage.

Have a look underneath and see if you can see anything obvious that is loose.

Also check wheel nuts are tight.

Well i drove it back to eastham from wallasey yday wen i got it back an i didnt hear a thing on the motorway but did driving round wallasey, it does sound like it comes thru the floor im convinced i can hear it both sides, the noise sounds like wen ya ball joint goes an u go round corners an it knocks except the noise is not a constant knock its jus a random knock here or there seems to be wen i pull out from a junction or wen i go over bumps or potholes if that helps.

Defo sounds like a wish bone, or anti roll bar bushes gone.

If it is either of them, buy the part yourself and fit it, why pay garage prices, they are very easy to fit.

Am not 100% certain, but I think these cars have drop links, like the focus. If it does have a pull on them see if they are loose or worn ball joint on them.

The bearing is in the wheel hub, you would not be able to see it.
