I have a 2000 Golf 1.8T. I may have issued with my tie rods. I wanted to get an alignment, Midas told my my left tie rod is loose, the VW dealer told my my right one is frozen solid. It sounds like everyone is trying to rip me off.
When I looked at my left, it seems solid to shaking, however it does rotate axialy. So the whole tie rod from where it attaches to the wheel to where it goes into the rubber boot it kinda twists +-20 degrees. The right one is solid and only rotates about the joint at the wheel to allow steering, as it should. I am just wondering if the left one sounds like its broken or should be replaced? I am not experienced with working on cars but have common sense. If anyone can advise me that woud be awesome.
