Pulls to the left

Hi guys my 2004 1.9jtd doblo pulls to the left while driving I have had the driveshaft changed which reduced the pulling tho it is still there,I have had the wheels tracked and balanced as well.
Any ideas what it could be?anyone had same issues?

Thanks

Re: Pulls to the left

i have just spent a full 2 week arguing with my mechanic over this and he stated that the tracking was fine. but it wasnt, it was out by 3mm on the front. they were straight but not in line. the doblos are supposed to be 1.5mm as standard or something like that.

i will get the full details on this and explain in detail what i mean..

also check tyres, even if one is a little bit worn than the other that wont help.

i have just had four new tyres. i had two on the front 3 weeks ago!!

i know where i am sending the bill. Just Tyres sorted me out no end.

Tracking and toe in matter with the Doblo, but I too have found that tyres are critical.

Very cheap ones don't always do it!

Re: Pulls to the left

Hi,have you checked the lower wishbone front bushs are not split or worn,common problem and puts the wisbone slightly out of line and can cause pulling,worth checking,hope this helps,John.

Re: Pulls to the left

make sure track rod end is ok too. (ball joint on end of steering rack). if pull happens whilst braking you could have a sticking osf brake caliper.

I always had this problem but thought it was due to my camper conversion.

Doblo weight is lopsided in UK. i.e. Driver and engine block on the right side but i thought that should counteract pull to left.

dunno. I just keep getting it tracked and rotate the front tyres around.

if there is particular tracking info that needs to be given to the tracking mechanic post it up someobody.
