On The Right Lines
Wheel Alignment Sheffield
It seems to be an obvious statement but a car’s steering is one of the most important parts of the vehicle. It has to be correctly set up. Any faults will reveal themselves because the car may wander or try to veer one way or another. What may not be so obvious, because the driver becomes used to it, is general wear and tear. Moving parts wear out. At an MOT testing garage the qualified vehicle tester will variously check the strength and condition of the steering wheel by pushing the steering in various directions and inspecting for wear or damage to the component parts. If a steering wheel has a locking device to help prevent theft, it will be tested to ensure it only locks when the engine is not running. Most cars these days will be fitted with power steering must have at least the minimum level fluid in the reservoir. These checks are not necessarily something an owner can oversee. They require a degree of specialised knowledge. It is however an owners responsibility to see that the steering is on the right lines. That is why we have car servicing and the MOT test.
