My Opel Corsa Utility pulls to the left when applying gentle brakes?


Asked by Feb 10, 2017 at 01:34 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have changed all the braking system components. Discs, Pads, Caliper
seals, cleaned the pins on the caliper[not seizing up], brake pipes and
brake booster and pressure bled the system. I have also had the complete
front suspension over hauled. New shocks and shock mountings, control
arm bushes and the ball joints. Sub frame checked and re-tightened.
Changed the 4 tires and did complete balancing and wheel alignment.
What i did notice was if the alignment is off slightly it pulls less.  If you drive
slowly and apply the brakes the front left of the vehicle dips and if you hold
the brakes and after 30 sec you leave the brakes the car rights itself

You did not mention the brake caliper hose brake line. The hose can deteriorate from the inside and collapsing blocking the flow of the brake fluid. I would replace the front brake hose lines. Other than that there may be some residue on the rotors to make them brake differently. But you say after 30 sec the car rights itself, the only thing doing that is the front struts.
