2001 Volvo S60 Question: I am hearing a grinding noise on the drivers side front wheel

 

Question

My car is grinding when I turn corners and a bit when I take off. It could be the CV axle, but I want to be sure before I order a new one. How would I check that to be sure? Tie Rods seem tight. Could it be another issue?

    No noise at road speed just when turning or pulling out?

    jack up front end, test turn side to side. if it clicks or pops, most likely cv joint. if you end up replacing one, replace other also. both under same stress, wear ratio would be the same.
