Ok I'm new to Ford so if this seems a silly question I'll apologise now

Does the Mondeo require 4 or 2 wheels alignment??

I recently had the tracking done on my 03 Mondeo and they adjusted all 4 wheels.

Can someone please tell me how to adjust the rear wheel tracking on a Mk3 mondeo as described above, as I would like to have it done to my own vehicle.

Any garage that does alignment and four wheel tracking will do it for you normally about 30 something like that. When i meant before i done it myself what i meant was in college we have the tracking and four wheel alignment equipment.

The reason i am asking how a garage would be able to do rear wheel alingment, is that as far as i am aware there is no adjustment on rear tracking other than fitting new suspension bushes, unlike the front where the track rod ends have threads that can be adjusted onto steering rack.

No doubt someone will enlighten me.

Hi the reason they do a 4 wheel alignment is to make sure the front wheels run inline with the rear wheels or the car could crab down the road. Hope that helps Dave

I have to agree. When I bought my MkII, I knew little about alignment, and drove with the wheel at an angle for the two years I had it. :P
I did do alignment with my Renault Laguna, but had to do so quite often, due to the track rod ends excessively wearing.

Now, that I'm back to Mondeo, this time in a MkIV, the slanted wheel was so unnatural after picking it up from the used car dealership, I gave my tyre garage free reins.
I'm glad I did, because not only is the steering wheel straight now, but also, the ESP is much less nervous on wet roads,
mostly because I decided to get all four wheels done, just instead of two, but also in part because one of the rims was bent, and I got the aluminium repaired.

My tyre specialist uses state of the art equipment, including laser tracking, computer balancing, etc., so they'll deffo find any issues that might arise.
