Post Vito front end knock

I have a 99 Vito 110cdi auto Traveliner that has an intermittent knock from the driver’s side front wheel / driveshaft area. The sound is speed related at 1knock /wheel revolution and at very low speeds has a slight crunching quality. It happens in reverse and cornering has no effect. The noise is loud enough to turn heads in the street at low (walking pace) speeds but disappears at speeds above 45mph (am I brave or foolish). When I say intermittent, I mean that it will appear on one day and continue for several trips and then vanish for no apparent reason. This has been going on for several months and several thousand miles, many trips to the garage (only to have the noise stop just before I get there) and a constant worry when travelling at speed that something is going to lock up and cause an accident. Can anyone help?
