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

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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?

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.
