Hey bross!!!

 

I Need help.... :(

My steering wheel keeps pulling me towards the left. How do I resolve this problem?

It has been bothering me for months!

 

I've tried wheel alignment, balancing, check tire pressure, swapping left an right wheel but doesn't work :wacko:  :wacko: :wacko:

I would check 3 things on top of those you had already checked

- steering arm linkage

- brake caliper on left side biting

- suspension on your left side

If you changed steering arm recently and this started to happen after that, I suggest re check the arm linkage. It may be not installed properly or not tightened correctly.

Are you pulling left even though you holding the steering straight?

Before and after I changed the steering arm still got the same problem.

Hmmmm.... okok.

Is when I let go of the steering wheel then it'll swerve towards the left.

then I must use abit of force to straighten the wheel as I drive.

 

Is this normal for C class?

because the other cars don't have this issue :(

Its quite normal for C class... I went back to C&C for wheel alignment. Takes one day. Problem solved.

I had the same problem previously. In the end CNC changed my camber bolt (longer ones I think) and made some adjustment to resolve it.

I have an E250 and had the same problem.  Had to change the camber bolts, do alignment and the pull to the left went away.

But they also did a wheel alignment for me during the full maintenance.

it still pulls to the left...

The problem was fixed after I changed to adjustable camber bolts and aligned the wheel more to the right. It doesn't pull like it used to, but still veers to the left if the steering is released eventually.

A normal wheel alignment will not work,  got to change the chamber bolts, that is the reason must leave the car at C&C for at least 1 day.

Means the root of the problem is the camber needs adjustment?

Yea, but the stock camber bolts need to be replaced with adjustable ones first so that the adjustment can be done. Otherwise, even though the specs on the alignment machine shows that all is aligned, it will still veer to the left.

Agree with PenangKia.  I did alignment and according to the alignment machine, all aligned, but still veer to the left.  I then went to a second alignment shop.  They checked and the machine said all aligned, but still veer to the left.  Straight away they knew what the problem was and  told me that the camber bolts needs to be replaced.  They also said that sometimes this change is not always necessary and depends on your particular car.  They even commented that CnC sents cars to them to be fixed.  Once the new camber bolts were installed and the car realigned, the car now rolls straight and true.

 

As you can tell, I did not do this at CnC.  I will PM u where I got this done

Plus alignment price of $80 per car.

I paid the same price as ClearVision.  I replaced 2 camber bolts and 2 torsion arm bolts.  I don't know if this has any difference when compared to just replacing the camber bolts.
