Hi
Had a new clutch fitted on my mk2 Mondeo. Since then steering to the right has been noticeably heavy. Steering to the left, no problem. Any ideas
Thanks

the front subframe and other bits have to be dropped to fit the clutch, it sounds like something has not been lined up correctley. go back to the garage and get them to check the problem out it was not like it before they did the work.

Been back to the guy who did it without success. Do you know if there's a way the alignments can be checked? Is this a main dealer thing?

get a mech to look at subframe from underneath the car, there should be tail tail signs its not been bolted back in exactly the same place. also check steering rack mountings just incase it is off centre
