  • One of our experienced technicians took the Peugeot 206 for a test drive to ascertain whether a four wheel alignment and geometry check was an appropriate course of action. The technician confirmed that the vehicle was very difficult to handle and recommended the 4 wheel alignment and geometry check as the first stage in the diagnosis of this problem.

    The Hunter DSP600 produced a very clear printout during the four wheel alignment and geometry check allowing the technician to analyse each aspect in detail before making any relevant adjustments. In the case of the Peugeot 206, although the 4 wheel alignment and geometry check revealed a slight misalignment in the front toe, it was apparent that the true cause of the steering wheel pulling to the left and right was the caster angles. The image below clearly demonstrates the lack of caster in the front wheels of the Peugeot 206.

  • A customer visited the 4 wheel alignment geometry bay at the garage this week complaining that his Mercedes Benz ‘C’ class was pulling to the left hand side of the road and the steering wheel alignment was incorrect (not straight). The customer had been experience problems with the steering wheel alignment since he purchased the car two years ago and had taken the vehicle to numerous garages within the Manchester and Bolton area to have the tracking and four wheel alignment assessed with no success. Here at Drury Lane Services (The Garage), our expert vehicle technicians began with an initial assessment of the condition of the tyres and set the tyre pressures to the Mercedes manufacturers settings. In addition, we undertook full suspension and steering checks in order to identify any abnormal wear. The suspension and vehicle checks revealed nothing unusual but the technicians did notice that the near-side-front (front left-hand side) brake was binding on (sticking). The technician recognised this as a common cause of steering wheel pulling.

    Following this initial investigation into the cause of the poor steering wheel alignment and pulling to the left, one of our experienced technicians conducted a 4 wheel alignment and geometry check on the vehicle using our Hunter DSP600 imaging system. The Hunter DSP600 imaging system is used to check a range of geometry and alignment angles including front and rear toes, front and rear cambers, caster angles, thrust angle and king pin inclination. The DSP600 readings did not reveal any significant faults in the alignment but the technician proceeded with the adjustments.

    A regular customer brought her Peugeot 206 to Drury Lane Services this week requesting a 4 wheel alignment and Geometry check following a series of steering problems she had been experiencing recently. During normal driving conditions she explained that the car felt very unstable and that the steering was pulling to the right and to the left and had become very unpredictable. The customer was particularly concerned because her daughter had recently driven the car and had said she felt afraid as the car was ‘all over the road’.

The Original - Project Merlot: 4 Wheel Alignment

If we hadn’t checked and verified the 4 wheel alignment using out Hunter DSP600 imaging system in the first place we could have been going around in circles.
