    Default Pulling to Left

    The car keeps pulling to the left when you are going forward and u let go over the wheel.

    Tracking has been checked and is ok... so what else could it be?

    The tracking probably ain't been set up properly. Did the garage check that the rear wheel set up was perfect before they set the fronts?

    As most common or garden tracking gear uses the rear wheels as a datum, incorrect rear settings = incorrect front settings.

    Ideally, you need a place like this in the South west. http://www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk/steeringgeometry.php. Also have a read of some of their "technical theory" for an insight into all manner of steering related problems.

    If your front tyres aren't rotional, try sawpping the n/s front for the o/s front or swap the fronts for the rears and see if the problem persists.

    the vx dealer said they looked at the tracking but it was a ok... then they looked puzzled when i asked what it was!!

    I will look at the tyre wear and see if thats suspect.... but the steering wheel itself is turned left by around 5 to 10 degrees..

    If its the tyres u reckon i will have a chance getting the vx dealer to change them for sod all seeing as i bought the car there less than a week ago?

    Mate is it when your driving your car actually turns left?

    As when I had my tracking done my Streering wheel was right 10 degrees and the car was driving stright

    but if yours is pulling left It very well could be the tyres

    Yeah u trundle along on a straight road
    (the faster u go the faster it pulls left)

    The steering wheel is perfectly aligned for going straight... but if u let go something pulls the steering wheel to the left.. and off into another lane we go!
