Went to the wheel alignment place this morning could not do it as the car is low and need a hunter system to be used, lucky one of my old mates recommended Protyre in slough get set of guys down there, did not need to book an appointment just sit and wait your turn.

Loads of adjustments on both the front and rear

But when they moved the car it would not steer it locked up so back on the ramp and the exhaust heat shield broke off and got jammed on the steering column

Oh dear mate! Not what you'd expect!

P.S. You're wasting your time and money on alignment if it's not Hunter IMO so good move to get it done properly

Blimey Sam she's throwing up curve balls for ya, glad that came off there and not whilst driving on main road,
With Lewy, if it's gotta be done it's gotta be a Hunter system.

Another lucky escape bud, but I can't see where it's broken? Almost looks as though the bolts came out?
