I took my A3 to have the tracking/alignment done last Friday as the steering wheel wasn't central when driving stright (slightly to the left) - and when I did have it straight, the car pulled slightly to the right.
They adjusted the tracking as it was slightly off, but the car still pulled to the right when the steering was straight.... so I took it back to them today to have another play and see what they could come up with. Left it with the the whole afternoon and they said that they had tried 5 different setting, even throwing the alignment out by 4mm, yet all the time the car would only drive straight with the steering wheel slightly to the left. They said they then went the other way - and as luck would have it, they could make the problem worse - i.e the car could only drive straight with the steering wheel a lot to the left, but they couldn't get it to go the other way, no matter what they tried.... said that they are a bit stumped by it... :confused:
I know these chaps quite well and trust that they did everything they could... so does anyone have any ideas of how to rectify the problem? Can the the steering wheel be taken off and fractionally adjusted to the right and replaced, or is it on specific slots with the steering column...?
The car hasn't been in any accidents, and tyre wear across the front tyres is even.... so I and them are at a bit of a loss.... :(
