Volkswagen Touran Service Manual: Vehicle Pulls to One Side

General Information

Perform a road test to determine if a vehicle pulls to one side and if so, when and to which side. If the vehicle pulls to one side. Refer to → Chapter "Corrective Action When Vehicle Pulls to One Side".
If the vehicle alignment is measured, submit the measurement printout and the complaint report with the tire.
Manufacturer's tolerances can lead to taper in the tire construction. This results in a side force when the tire rolls, which acts directly on the suspension and can therefore lead to vehicle self-steering behavior. Targeted rotation of the wheels can balance out this self-steering behavior.
