Any one know a decent 4 wheel tracking place near manchester? Car seems to be pulling left, which is a known fault on the w204. The place I took it to couldn't get the bolts out..... (rear drivers side) bolt 580 on the diagram below, apparently its seized up. took it to mercedes whitefield, then was told the front tie end rods need replacing.... not even mentioned any thing about the rear seized bolts. totally confused now?? I am taking the vehicle to an independent mercedes specialist to have a look at it and confirm. Just wondering if any one has had the issue before and if it can be cured, many thanks Merc rear.png

MB started with checking all potential issues were neutral so a height check, tyre check, bearings, bushes etc so first issue is tie rods which is fair as you couldn't run a full geometry check until replaced.
The garage looking at geometry check have probably either discounted or skipped that check and gone straight for camber/caster adjustment bolts so they are also correct in needing to remove seized bolt - not sure why they would struggle with that though!
I've always preferred running a little toed in at front to make drifting into the gutter less of an issue.

If Bolton's not too far for you, then Nigel Lang's Garage are the go to people for alignment.

They have the Hunter machinery and, most importantly, know how to use it. The last one they did for me was my W201 which was a fair way out and they got it spot on, including a detailed explanation of what was happening by the operator.

I was recommended to them by a Hunter service engineer who explained to me that whilst several people now have these machines installed, including a few of the "generic" tyre outlets, a lot less actually understand the intricacies of them in the real world.
