    Default car booked in vx for tomorrow

    to have the for wheel alignment checked
    its been pulling to the left since i had the new tyres on the front and when i had the rears done a few days ago they where worn on the inside edge
    its going to cost £75 for the lot apparently they can adjust the rears as well as the fronts

    Quik Fit(up) do the alignment for about £25. I'm not sure if rear wheels can be realigned (there's no track rod end to adjust) so mibbe you've got worn bearings on the back? Is the near side tyre pressure correct? It's normally only a trip down a pot hole, or a cheeky wee kerbing that throws the tracking out.

    Remember, it's only a theory.....

    took them two hours they adjusted the fronts numerous times and also did the rear camber but it was still pulling to the right finally decided it was the tyres so swapped the backs with the fronts and now its fine
    was dreading the bill but so happens i know the service manager so it only cost £35
    so guys there are some good dealers out there
