CV Joint ?

Hi,
Whenever I make a sharp left corner, I hear a scratching of metal sound, the sharper the turn, the louder the noise. Does this mean the CV joint needs replacing?

Please reply asap.

Thanks

Re: CV Joint ?

Does it stop if you apply the breaks gently while turning? If so it could be coming from the pads or the discs, the CV Joints normally make a knocking noise when turning on full lock, you could turn the steering wheel on full lock at each side and look behind the wheels and see if the CV/Rubber Boot is burst or hanging off also leaking fluid.

This is what the CV Joint/Rubber Boot looks like..
