[Steering & Suspension] Pulling to the Left
I seem to have an intermittent problem.

About two weeks ago my MK3 was pulling to the left. Tried it in a flat car park and it was definitely pulling left.

Two days later the problem vanished. Driving fine for the last couple of weeks.

This morning the car is pulling left again.

Before I take it the dealer and they shrug their shoulders, can anyone please suggest a cause or cure ?
Brake dragging intermittently?? Was a left wheel hot?

Had this on a previous car and it was a caliper on the blink. Cleaning it up (both sides ) worked during my ownership. As 3rensho suggests, feel the brake discs (carefully cos they don't arf get hot!). You may also get more brake pad residue on the wheel with the problem - not to mention the pads wearing out pdq.
'56 Multispace 1.6HDi - Iron Grey
Thanks. I will feel the disc on the left side.
The car is still under warranty from a Citroen dealer. Their diagnosis was strut top bearings which they have just replaced for me today.

Any opinions on that ?

I will report back if the problem persists.
Never top bearings to cause that !

As above posts , strip out pads , coppers slip and replace , check caliper guides are not "dry" or rubber boots split and allowing the guides to stick.

Also check disc is not warped , I known in extreme cases wheel bearings collapsing causes similar, but very rare.

Good luck
