I didn't use Kwikfit, so no I didn't. But then my D3 is nearly 12 yrs old Shocked and this is the first time it has genuinely needed aligning...... Thumbs Up edited.. Laughing

Neither did I. But I've had a number of new bits and it drove like Censored after they were replaced so it needed doing.

kwik fit

I have just spoken to quick fit and he said he wouldn't recommend doing the 4 wheel alignment using their hunter system as it doesn't have the Tight tolerance mode. Sad

he said he could do it buy couldn't guarantee how accurate it would be .

not sure what to do now.

regards
Mark

That kwikfit clearly does not know how their systems work as it is the car that is put into TTM, not the alignment equipment....

Try alignmycar.co.uk to find your nearest accredited alignment centre. I will use the nearest one for mine once I have my front tyres replaced. Thumbs Up

hunter wheel alignement

Got it done at the weekend, much better now, found a garage on that website, alignmycar.

But now the steering wheel isn't straight when the car is driving in a straight line.
dont know how they managed that.

so ether i take it back or i take the wheel off and move it around a few notches.
Confused

Take it back, if steering wheel off centre the steering angle sensor is also out/needing calibration.

Yes, take it back, they should have locked the steering wheel in the straight position before adjusting the track rods. Rolling Eyes
