I have a 2008 tdci and yesterday while driving from work hit a pothole while braking. There was a horrible grinding noise like the car had jumped out of gear, but it hadnt. I now get the same crunch when i turn left or right quite sharply. I took wheels off to check cv joints and the internal drivers side boot had slipped down the shaft slightly. 

The steering does not make a noise when stationery.

 

Does this sound like the cv axle?
