Hi there and thanks to the Controller for posting the data for the Mk III

I'm currently having difficulty finding the Alignment data for the MkIV.

As it is a much larger car with, it appears, a longer and wider wheelbase, I take it the geometry is very different.

For example, taking the front Total Toe, I've had avice that it should be 0.0 (as the Mk III) or +1.4mm . Anyone know which is correct

Ta and Regards

Steve

All that info but it doesn't answer the simple question about the maximum offset :blink:

From what I have as regards the Mk III

Front Total toe 0.0mm +/- 1mm 0degrees 0' +/- 8'

Rear Total Toe +2.0mm +/- 1mm. 0degrees +17' +/- 8'

Which means I assume the Front toe is allowed to be between -1mm and +1mm, or -8' to +8' (' = minutes of arc, 1' = 1/60 degree)

Does that help?

=============================================================================================

And now back to the Mk IV

Aligned on a Hunter system today which I think it has the same data as the Corghi I've used before....

And, the data they have is different from that for the Mk III and previous. But then the Mk IV is longer and wider (Ford trying to recreate a Granada??) and does therefore, I assume, have different geometry.

So, for info, here is what I have found out this morning

Hunter Alignment System - Ford Mondeo Mk IV (2007 on) 2.0TDCi (140PS)

Data Front Half Toe +2' to +10' Total Toe +4' to +20' Vehicle set to L/R +6'/+6' Total +11'

Data Rear Half Toe +8' to +16' Total Toe +16' to +32' Vehicle set to L/R 10'/11' Total +21'

So it will be interesting to see what info our experts have. The average MPG is usually a good guide to whether a Mk IV has gone out of alignment!!

Regards

Steve

But can you tell me how they adjust the rear on a 2002 Mk3 Mondeo estate?
