    +ve Camber problem

    Since I've had my sporthatch I've had issues with it pulling to the left. I've had the tracking checked at 3 different garages and its spot on. The 3rd garage found that the camber was out on the passengers side, the wheel has +ve camber, they tried to adjust it but it wouldn't come into tolerance and they suggested going to a accident repair centre for a fully geometry check up.

    What could cause just 1 wheel to have this +ve camber as there is nothing obvious that I can see wrong under the car.

    got car back from accident repair centre and the verdict is no accident damage and nothing visible.

    Their suggestion is that either the hub/strut or wishbone is at fault.

    They can jig it but this would cost £150

    So going to do some investigation myself
