when for example i accelerate on a straight road my car pulls quite violently to the right, Then when i ease back on the throttle the car returns to straight driving :blink: symtoms are very much like getting caught by a cross wind :angry: i have changed my tyres around as a precausion, ond have checked for any obvious wear on ball joints ect but they seem ok
any ideas please on what could be causing this

brakes binding/broken spring drop link or if youve kerbed the car you may have twisted something like the strut

Hi, my daughter's ka had this problem of pulling to the right & some vibration like wheel imbalance but ONLY when accelerating. The general opinion was suspension bushes wich were duly changed to no avail.
It turned out to be the near side driveshaft inner joint badly worn. Apparently it was bone dry which had caused the excessive wear. I have read of someone else with a focus also experiencing these symptoms & his turned out to be the inner driveshaft joint as well. Might be worth a look if you've ruled out things like tyres etc. . . . .
