    Axle Alignment

    I have just notice that the right rear wheel sticks out further that the left, also it pulls slightly to the right. My Landrover is a 95' 300tdi. It doesn't make any nasty noises when cornering, the only thing it does do is make a metal on metal noise on the left rear wheel when I reverse out...

    Sticky Steering Wheel

    When my S3 has been standing for any length of time in wet weather, the surface of the steering wheel gets sticky - leaving black deposits over the driver's hands which are a bu99er to get off. After about 20 minutes of driving, it's smooth and dry again. Any ideas?

    Hiya I know that this has been covered before, but I'd just like to clarify something. I'm sure there are two sizes of "Z"-shaped bonnet clamp - one for SWB and one for LWB - am I correct? The clamps I have won't locate the wheel on my bonnet - the longer leg of the "Z" is too short (if you...
