    it wouldnt pull it into the green or he couldnt undo the nut? You have the 'toe' adujustment, the 'camber' adjustment and caster

    Best solution would have been to have the agent highlight (with either blue or yellow paint highlighter) the part they needed to adjust, then drive to the nearest VX dealership and have them identify the part, and order it for you

    My guess would be, you would need to buy items 18, 19, 20 and 21 in the following pic......

    Z02_M_1.gif

    Item 18
    11102411
    (Screw, Torx, M12 X 90, Control Arm To Rear Axle, Lower)

    Item 19
    11094488
    (Nut, Hex., M12, Control Arm To Crossmember)

    Item 20 (2 lengths)
    24422973 (Screw And Washer, M12 X 100, Control Arm To Rear Axle, Lower)
    24422972 (Screw And Washer, M12 X 85, Control Arm To Crossmember)

    Item 21
    24428132 (Washer, Control Arm To Rear Axle, Lower)

    __________________________________________________ __________

    Are these the same ones you had trouble with Lee???


    Will be putting in an order for these (providing I've got it right, hopefully someone can confirm???) to Vauxhall as I will be looking at getting a 4 wheel alignment done in the next few weeks after fitting my new tyres, rear upper control arm bushes, rear droplinks and rear anti-roll bar bushes.

    Anybody any idea roughly how much a 4 wheel alignment costs these days?? Neighbour was scaring me with numbers as high as £200-£250 Hope its not that bleeding high

    There are 3 figures for the rear toe in/out, caster and camber WHAT was -1.26 degrees all of them or just one when we know what it is we can advise what parts you need to buy
