Hi there. If the wheel is rotating when the steering is turned and you hear a knocking sound, then this is the sound of a constant velocity (CV) shaft bearing failing. Remove the front wheels and check around the CV shaft and see if the boot has a rip or it is missing a clamp. If you are having to replace a CV shaft, I recommend replacing both drive CV shafts to prevent any breakage to the shafts. If you need further assistance with your vehicle, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose the knocking noise. After that, they can follow through with correct repairs.
