c3 picasso 2010 front wheel alignment toe in specs?

Post by mart »

Hello! I have fitted new track rod ends to my c3 Picasso and want to check the tracking.
I can't find any specs online but can find the following for a C3.

Front Total Toe, -0.25, -0.08.

So my questions.
Can anyone quote the toe in figures for the c3 picasso?
Or are the C3 numbers close enough?
Are the numbers quoting degrees or mm or inches (guessing degrees)
I'm also thinking a - indicates toe out. Correct?

Thanks in advance for any guidance and help.

Mart.

No, they're not the same. The following are for the C3 Picasso:

"A" less than "B": Positive figure (+) (toe-in).
"A" more than "B": Negative figure (-) (opening / toe out).

Thanks for that. I have a pair of vintage Dunlop tracking gauges and my first reading gave a massive 2 deg plus toeing IN! Making adjustments now to get it better. It just shows the differences you can get when fitting pattern parts.

Thanks for the info.
