2008 Steering problem

Post by 2008 Owner »

Hi, can anybody help please?! I have a Peugeot 2008 diesel on a 16 plate and have a problem with the steering. It pulls to the right until about 30 miles per hour, this is upon acceleration and when slowing down. Above 30 mph it drives straight. I have had the tyre pressure and tracking checked, it has been up on a ramp and the suspension and steering checked for anything loose or broken. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Several reasons - but sounds like torque steer - most likely a one of the suspension components, so could be related to a tie rod with too much slack, or a loose ball joint the lower control arm bushing. It's unlikely to be wheel alignment if it's only happening on acceleration.

Time to get it checked again by a garage that knows how to check these things properly.
