    Having looked at lots of posts on this and not finding anything that works? I have a 2001 range, that has had its tracking done by layser sight? and have been back with it 3 times in 2 weeks as the steering wheel is not quite right. Its down(only a small amount) on the left,so when you hold it straight the car moves very slowly to the middle of the road(not the best thing). they say everything is bang on straight but its not! is there something that they ar'nt doing? when they track it they clamp the steering wheel and it looks dead straight but theres something not right?
    Any ideas before she go's back on weds.

    After tracking and with wheels pointing ahead the steering box may need to be centralised. If the steering wheel has not been removed, point wheels ahead and adjust drag link (the link in front of axle connecting hub to steering box) i until wheel is in correct position. Changing length of drag link will not change track setting. If in doubt about it follow instructions in RAVE for centering steering box and steering wheel. If the steering box is not centralised with road wheels pointing ahead, the vehicle will wander. It's pretty obvious the people doing the tracking don't know what their doing.

    So as its already been tracked? if they adjust the drag link they should not need to re-adjust the tracking..and the steering wheel will be straight?
