Steering noise / looseness from bad tie rod?

Hi guys,

I've noticed the steering wheel on my '91 325iX has movement whether driving or parked and makes noise. I know the passenger tie rod needs replacement. Could that cause this steering wheel issue? Video below, thanks.

Thanks guys. I've been searching around to see how to replace the u
-joint. Some suggest first tightening the large nut on the steering column. Could that potentially work?

Mine did that, and I tightened the big nut on the steering column that allows the column to collapse AS TIGHT AS I COULD POSSIBLY GET IT (!!!) and that took care of it.

I'd try that first since it's free and only take a few minutes
