I'm new to these forums and know nothing about cars so I apologise for being a burden.

I have an SX4 (not 4x4 version) that I've had for about a year.  It's just over 4 years old, only has 23k miles clocked up but seems to have developed some sort of mechanical issue.  When reversing with full steering lock on (or close to it) there is a terrible clunking/juddering that you can both feel and hear.  It feels like something is under increasing stress before giving way and this repeats itself over and over whilst you reverse.  It feels quite violent.  It's fine going forwards and reversing gentler turns.  I've had a garage check it over and was told that nothing showed up in their initial checks leading them to believe it is either the inner drive shaft or the gear box but they'd need to strip it down to confirm.  

It seems like a big issue for such a low mileage car.  Has anyone experienced this issue before, have any other suggestions as to what it could be, or have any suggestions on a cheaper way to go about resolving it if the garage is right?  I wasn't expecting the possible £1000+ bill when I sent it in!

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
