UPDATE - KwikFit confirmed as ****s
Now had the tracking done carefully and correctly by a mechanic who was prepared to discuss things with me and even let me follow him doing the job. He found the Rh track rod nut was seized - so Kwik Fit couldn't possibly have adjusted it. In act what they'd done was not block the steering wheel and then did all the adjustment using just the LH track rod! So the wheels were parallel all right, but pointing to the left when the car was driving straight! No wonder the ABS/VDC was complaining. And several of you have had the same problem with KwikFit - tracking 'corrected' but wheel off-centre and VDC lights and rumbling. In my case it's caused (or accelerated the onset) a wheel bearing to fail.
If only I'd done a search on KwikFit on the forum first! The number of alfisti who have had their cars trashed by this chain is incredible. KF have also been in the Press for using unpaid trainees and instructing their fitters to 'find' work on customers' cars.
