Worn rear tyres

Postby alanf406 » Thu Apr 07, 2016 2:29 pm

As the heading says, Iv'e just noticed that the inside of the rear tyres is a lot more worn than the outside and centre, do you need to get the tracking adjusted on the rears, as Iv'e never had to do this on any other car that Iv'e owned. its a 2005 2ltr hdi estate.

Yes, tracking needs adjusting on the rears, but check these upper rear link rods are in good condition before you take it in for alignment (4 wheel alignment is what you need).....These link rods adjust the rear tracking using an eccentric bolt....viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7376
