    Wheel wobble ideas?

    Do any of you guy know if a worn or damaged steering rack can cause wheel wobble. All other causes have been eliminated now over the past 3 months and have been told that it could be down to the steeruing rack or one guy said it could be the dual mass flywheel.

    Just wondered if anyone else has seen the same problem on a MK5 1.7cdti.

    Cheers
