    Sporthatch pulling to left

    What would cause my Sporthatch to pull to the left?

    Things that have been done

    Wheels swapped front-back
    Drop link changed nearside
    Tracking set-up
    Brakes not binding- just passed MOT
    No play or roughness in wheel bearing

    I do get some whirring noise at speed could this still be the wheel bearing and the MOT check hasn't found it?

    tyre pressure can make it pull but you have swapped front for back so that might cancel that 1 out,
    or drive shaft?

    Noticed today that the wheel is slightly off centre to keep car in straight line, which would suggest tracking but this has been checked is there anything else I can check

    dose it happen on every road then because mine will pull on some roads but not all of them depends on the camber of the road

    Going to have another look at the passengers side tomorrow, just don't know what it could be as nothing was picked up on the MOT last week either
