i wouldnt bother about it to be honest, i took mine to the renault dealer, and they simply reduced it, DIDNT fix it, just made it look abit better, and i then got new tryes from kwik-fit and had them to the tracking whilst they were at it, and also not quite right, but it still annoys the hell out of me, but you get used to it. the renault dealer charged me 40 to do it, kwik fit were 21.50 i think.

i had it some youngster at the tyre place didn't clamp the steering wheel when he did the wheel alignment next time I got the wheels aligned 15 I just made sure they straightened it and clamped it first. Not a big deal but drove my wife mad.

I had it on my Scenic cost me 25 to have it put right.
Just a thought but has it got the original wheels on, as fitting bigger wheels and or tyres can cause the tracking to be out.

I'm not sure that the tracking can be altered by fitting aftermarket wheels (unless they are completely wrong in terms of offset), but wider wheels/tyres will magnify and highlight any deviation in the tracking itself.

Most tracking faults are caused by potholes & kerbing.


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

Any ideas why, recently bought the car and just noticed.

Cheers, Steve.

ps You can add my name to the growing list of owners that have to replace the crank sensor!
I have this too I've noticed it after month of driving. It's not a practical problem, it's more kind of a approach problem.
