In the snow I have slid into a wall. The front offside wheel

This answer was rated:

In the snow I have slid into a wall. The front offside wheel has taken the hit. It drives ok but on full lock there is an obvious wheel problem. Is it safe to drive still?

Hi chris
If it seems to drive ok when not turning to full lock, then you are probably ok to drive it, however have a shop or dealer check this out as soon as it is convenient for you. Something became bent when You hit the wall. So go to where you need to be today, but get this checked asap.

Do you think the axle may be damaged?
Probably not if it drives ok when going straight. If the axle was damaged, then you would be experiencing bad vibrations.

You probably bent a tie rod.
