Dear all, my S2 pulls slightly into the right. During long trips on highway it' s boring. So I went to visit the best tyre man in town. He knows nothing about S2. He measured the wheels 's angles and stated that my S2 has got the two front wheels leaned both to the right of 1 degres which total a 2 degres camber, this should be the reason why my S2 pulls into the right, he said that camber is not adjustable on this car. I read on the workshop manual that the S2 camber is adjustable. I try to see by myself if following to the shop manual I could move it. But Ií m stuck because Iím not able to find a wrench which fits the eccentric bush, perhaps there is a special tools? The bush measure 44 mm, but my wrench 44 mm is to thick to grab it.

Grassetto,

The camber is adjustable. This is achieved by an eccentric bush that connects the vertical arm with king pin/wheel to upper wishbone arms. You have to loosen bolt (undo tab washer first) and turn it in for negative and out for positive, don't forget to tighten again. Have you checked toe-in and tried swopping front wheels side to side. The information can be found in Post War library under S2 suspension.
