No, both the front and rear camber is not adjustable on the DS5 (including the Hybrid traction which you have).

Rear Suspension
Camber (not adjustable)- 2°22' (± 0°30')
Tracking at the axle (adjustable)+ 0°43' (± 0°09')
Tracking at the wheel (adjustable)+ 0°21' (± 0°04')
Thrust angle0° (± 0°30')
Camber dissymmetry0° (± 30')

Front Suspension
Camber: Left-hand wheel (not adjustable)- 0°18' (+ 0°36' ; - 0°24')
Camber: Right-hand wheel (not adjustable)- 0°18' (+ 0°24' ; - 0°36')
Castor (not adjustable)+ 4°36' (± 0°30')
Pivot angle: Left-hand wheel (not adjustable)+ 12°54' (+ 0°24' ; - 0°36')
Pivot angle: Right-hand wheel (not adjustable)+ 12°54'(+ 0°36' ; - 0°24')
Tracking at the axle (adjustable)- 0°13' (± 0°09')
Tracking at the wheel (adjustable)- 0°07' (± 0°04')
Camber dissymmetry+ 0°12' (± 28')
Castor dissymmetry0° (± 20')
Pivot angle dissymmetry- 0°12' (± 28')
(Distribute the global parallelism value symmetrically, left wheel-right wheel.)

New tryes and tracking attempted. Front sorted but rear boults seized up. Chap thinks if its un seized it can be sorted without new bits. not so bad. thanks Marc

Check the rear (fixed) lower arms to see if they have been used to jack the car up. They are easy to put a slight bend into. cheers
