Hi Tony.

The tailgate can be adjusted, but it'll possibly be a bit more complicated than you imagine, as the fixings holding it all in place will only be accessible when the tailgate is open (and therefore not easy to fine-tune adjust), if you know what I mean. There may well be some trial & error involved to get it right.

Regards the steering wheel position, its possible that someone has had the tracking adjusted (or an item of the suspension/steering replaced),and whoever has done the job, has been a bit lazy in not ensuring the steering wheel is centred, when the front wheels are pointing straight ahead.

Its a straightforward job for a mechanic.

Hope this helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
