Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Car Models: Saab 9-3 Aero Convertible 2006

So I recently had to take the car into the garage because the power steering pipes corroded and the system lost all the fluid. They had a workshop make the pipes as they couldn't find any spare parts anymore...
After I picked up the car I noticed a lot of wheel slip when I am at full lock and parking speed. At first I thought it's a combination of road surface (slippery), tyre wear...but it seems to do it all the time, even on dry tarmac, and my tyres aren't yet in need of a change, they're not new, but not bald either (dunlop sportmaxx).

Could this be a geometry issue and will a wheel alignment fix it? The car still drives straight, with the minimal torque steer that comes with it, so I'm just a bit stuck.

Thank you.

Sorry not a solution buy i get exactly the same on my Volvo V70 on full lock as a come out of my drive. Oddly it does it if I turn right but not left. I also thought it was slippery road surface but seems not. It does not effect normal driving though. It's really is an odd one. I'd love to see people's thoughts/views.

Not sure but has the 9-3 got equal length drive shafts, ie and intermediate bearing on the O/S shaft, or not ? If not then it could be a torque reaction thing, otherwise I would have the camber angle checked to make sure that it is not tipping too far out when on full lock.
