Hunter Wheel Alignment

WHEEL ALIGNMENT GLASGOW SPECIALIST


At MB Jarvie Wheel Alignment Glasgow we use the award winning, state of the art, Hunter Elite TD four-wheel aligner. Using a series of high-definition imaging sensors, the Hunter Hawkeye four-wheel aligner measures 14 primary alignment angles on your vehicle with unparalleled accuracy.
When your car is out of alignment, you may experience irregular and premature tyre wear, handling problems or a misaligned steering wheel. A 4 wheel alignment adjustment can correct these problems and increase fuel economy, prolong tyre service life and ensure driver assist systems continuing functioning as intended. Achieve true rolling motion at MB Jarvie Wheel Alignment Glasgow.

Special Operations


Vehicle ride height must be within specification to facilitate correct wheel alignment adjustment. The wheel alignment values specified by the manufacturer only apply for a given ride height (this value can vary per axle). If ride height cannot be confirmed, there is little point in adjusting the vehicle to the manufacture’s alignment values (as they do not apply if ride height is outside of specification). Conventional coil springs are checked for damage, corrosion and sag. At MB Jarvie Ltd we use the Hunter Engineering ride height targets to measure the individual vehicle ride heights with millimetre accuracy.  Certain brands (e.g. BMW/MINI) require ballast loading to set the vehicle ride height to a specified value for the front and rear axles. Vehicles fitted with auto-level air suspension first require calibration. To do this ride height is measured at all corners and a diagnostic process is completed to calibrate the system. This applies to VAG vehicles and Land Rover (“tight tolerance” mode must be active).

Ballast Loading E.g. BMW/MINI

  • VEHICLES FITTED WITH AIR SUSPENSION AND AUTO-LEVEL CONTROL SYSTEMS MUST FIRST BE CALIBRATED PRIOR TO ALIGNMENT.

Wheel Alignment & Geometry Audit


A comprehensive range of alignment and geometry checks, including additional measurements, that will highlight any deviations from specification. This is a highly recommended procedure where a complete and accurate picture of a vehicle’s geometry is required, whether it be for inspection or diagnostic purposes.

Explained

WHEEL ALIGNMENT GLASGOW SPECIALIST

Case #1


Details

  • Make/model: Mercedes-Benz/C-class
  • Suspension: Fully adjustable
  • Symptom/s: Steering wheel not level; uneven tyre wear

Measurements

The following illustration shows the measured wheel alignment angles straight from the Hunter Elite TD aligner. The colour-coding is a clear way of displaying whether a measurement inside or outside of manufacturer’s specified tolerance. Measurements are only made once the vehicle has passed our pre-alignment checks and following completion of any required special operations (see above).

wheel alignment glasgow

Report

The illustration clearly shows that the front and rear toe angles on this vehicle are outwith the manufacturer’s specified tolerance and therefore must be adjusted to correct. The measurements obtained by the Hunter Elite TD Aligner confirm that incorrect wheel alignment has been causing or, at the very least, is contributing to the customer’s reported symptoms.

Action

Fortunately this vehicle has fully adjustable front and rear toe which allowed for a straight forward thrust-line alignment to bring the wheel alignment into specification. When adjusting alignment angles we work to specified values, not tolerance. We want your car to be the best it can be.

Scope of work

  • Special operations
  • Seizure
  • Front toe
  • Rear toe
  • Additional adjustments

Pricing

Scope of work required to bring vehicle to alignment specification: Thrust-line Alignment (front & rear toe adjustments) – total cost £65+vat. For this vehicle, outside of standard pre-alignment checks, no special operations (e.g. ballast loading/suspension calibration/etc) were required. Seizure did not inhibit adjustment.

Case #2


Details

  • Make/model: MINI/F55
  • Suspension: Fully adjustable
  • Symptom/s: Uneven tyre wear

Measurements

The following illustration shows the measured wheel alignment angles straight from the Hunter Elite TD aligner. The colour-coding is a clear way of displaying whether a measurement inside or outside of manufacturer’s specified tolerance. Measurements are only made once the vehicle has passed our pre-alignment checks and following completion of any required special operations (see above).

wheel alignment glasgow

Report

The illustration clearly shows that the rear camber angles on this vehicle are outwith the manufacturer’s specified tolerance and therefore must be adjusted to correct. The measurements obtained by the Hunter Elite TD Aligner confirm that incorrect wheel alignment has been causing or, at the very least, is contributing to the customer’s reported symptoms.

Action

Fortunately this vehicle has fully adjustable suspension which allowed the required adjustments to be completed to bring the wheel alignment to specification. The required action included rear camber adjustments plus front and rear toe adjustments. NOTE: Despite the total rear toe angle being within specification at the initial measurement, adjustment was required, as when adjusting rear camber, toe angles will alter and therefore also require adjustment to correct/maintain specification. Once the rear camber and rear toe/thrust-line had been adjusted/zeroed, it is of critical importance that the front axle toe also be adjusted (vehicles with fully adjustable front and rear suspension, front toe must always be adjusted following any rear axle adjustment to ensure “steer ahead” angle is correct). When adjusting alignment angles we work to specified values, not tolerance. We want your car to be the best it can be.

Scope of work

  • Special operations (ballast loading)
  • Seizure
  • Front toe
  • Rear toe
  • Additional adjustments (rear camber – standard)

Pricing

Scope of work required to bring vehicle to alignment specification: Ballast Loading (£19.95+vat) + Rear Camber (2 x £19.95+vat) + Front & Rear Toe/Thrust-line Adjustments (£65+vat) = total cost £124.85+vat.

Case #3


Details

  • Make/model: Ford/Fiesta
  • Suspension: Front toe only
  • Symptom/s: None

Measurements

The following illustration shows the measured wheel alignment angles straight from the Hunter Elite TD aligner. The colour-coding is a clear way of displaying whether a measurement inside or outside of manufacturer’s specified tolerance. Measurements are only made once the vehicle has passed our pre-alignment checks and following completion of any required special operations (see above).

wheel alignment glasgow

Report

The illustration shows that all measured angles on this vehicle are within the manufacturer’s specified tolerance and therefore no adjustment is required. This is especially good news because this vehicle has adjustable front toe only which means the scope for correcting any wheel alignment issues is limited.

Action

No action required 🙂

Scope of work

  • Special operations
  • Seizure
  • Front toe
  • Rear toe
  • Additional adjustments

Pricing

Scope of work required to bring vehicle to alignment specification: No adjustment required (£0.00) = total cost £0.00.
