hi i was wondering if anyone can help?

I have a rover 420 SLDi (1996), which constantly pulls to the left.

I have done the tracking and wheel allignment several time but it doesnt help.

Also I have noticed when i drive in a straight line the steering is off centre, off to the left hand side in actual fact!

Can anyone suggest what might be wrong to save an enourmous bill from my garage?

thanks in advance!!! :xmas:

Mine does it and it has a bent sub-frame prob not what you want to hear but it could be that...??

Failing that the g/f had her renault 5 pulling over to the left lots and that was coz of a dodgy tyre !

Could it be a sticking brake caliper? I had this with my 100 over the summer, and it needed to have the guide pins at the LHS taken out, re-greased and refitted. It's worth a look - should only take about half an hour. If you've got alloy wheels, you can normally tell if a disc brake is binding by washing the wheels and seeing if one side gets more brake dust stuck to it...
