    hello all i have had a problem with my 06 vedtra 1.9 tdi 150 the rear yyres were worn on the inside wall so much that it had got down to the ribbon on 1 tyre.had tyres from quickfit they were going to check the toe ,on the ramp 2 springs were broke on the drivers side . i have replaced all 4 springs took it back to kwick fit today they have a top of the range machine he has rectified the toe but i have a computer readout

    front left castor 4.44 deg
    camber -2.16

    front right castor 6.07
    camber in the green -0.56

    rear left toe -1.20 camber -2.10

    rear rigt toe 0.30 camber in green -1.60

    kwick fit told me that on the computer you can not adjust castor and camber drove the car for test drive pulling to the right when i let go of the wheel they gave me a full refund and said it was a mian dealer to sort out any help please living in darlingto north east

    The camber can be adjusted, they just need to know how
    The response from Kwik Fit kind of says it all
    Equally, even my local VX dealership cannot check and adjust camber, they don't have the equipment for doing this

    Find another outlet with Hunters equipment, they should be able to perform the required adjustments
    When phoning up, simply ask if they can adjust the camber settings on a Vectra C

    What a rip off.

    Go to www.alignmycar.com and find some garage with the same equipment. Mine cost £45 to be done.
