What is this clack sound when turning? Short Video

What is this sound when i turn or go over bumps? I live in a town full of a million idiots. They always (and did for this) tell me my car is fine when i take it to the shops. While usually breaking something new.

Does it sound like its coming from under the dash? Do you have any kind of alarm installed to where something might be hanging loose behind the kick panel? The car have abs?

No its way louder than my alrm parts that hang and click or tap at most. This is a louder clack and it comes from the mid front of the right side and the alarm brain is all left side

LOL.. I cant figure out for the life of me, what you are saying in that video.

I did hear a knock sound.. If it knocks badly while turning in motion, I would guess that is a bad CV axle joint. They don't usually make noise over bumps though.
The knocking over a bump in the road would seem more like a bad control arm ball joint. One more option (rather rare) could be the strut mount bearing. Lastly,.. maybe the steering rack bushing is rotten and gone??

Is it consistent? Every turn and/or bump? Is there any way someone could stand outside by a corner of a side street or something to possibly help verify if the sound is more profound outside or inside the vehicle?

The CV Axle could be it, mine makes noise on turns every now and then. But I also had noise on bumps, which turned out to be a loose sway bar linkage. I would check those since they are the cheapest to replace if needed.
