    I Don't want to come across negative, the main signs I've seen are these, there a plenty of threads on this site about these. I have the V6 CDTi but the first two are common the the chassis almost regardless of engine.

    1. Excessive Negative Rear wheel camber - Signs: rear tyres wear excessively on the inner edges / rear wheels visibly lean in at the top and out at the bottom when viewed from behind.
    2. Wheel bearing wear - Signs: Loud rumbling / droning from suspect hub(s)
    3. EGR valve clogs up - Signs: Blue smoke, loss of power, erratic tickover
