    1998 Passat 1.8lt making noise durring sharp turns.

    Hi, I have a 1998 Passat 1.8lt, recently i've been hearing noises when doing sharp turns especially U-turns. the sound is kind of like the wheel is lose, it sounds worse when doing a right hand turn, but i also hear it durring left turns. i just got an oil change and was told that the left side needed an outer tie rod. could that be the problem on the other side as well? Thanks.

    i read some things online and it looks like it may be the cv boot. I looked under the car and it looks torn. The car came with a cover at the bottom of car for engine and and oil pan and stuff, i removed it to do an oil change and broke a part that kept it up so i never put it back so im assuming that dirt and debree may have gotten in there, does this sound like it could be the problem?
