Seat Leon >> Specified values for wheel alignment

If measured values are outside specified tolerances, this may be because the vehicle is inclined.

Right-hand drive vehicles or e.g. vehicles with an automatic gearbox may lean to one side slightly.

This is due to the installation position of the assemblies and their associated weight transfer and is normal.

  • In such cases it is essential to measure dimension -a- at the rear on both sides.
  • Correct any differences as required.

The front axle may be balanced by attaching balance weights onto the suspension turret on the corresponding side, in the engine compartment.

On the rear axle, compensate by adding weights to the respective side of the luggage compartment.

Sand-filled sacks (weighing approx. 10 kg) are suitable for this.
