Yakima Tot Rod wheel alignment?

My Yakima Tot Rod has a wheel alignment issue. One of the wheel's camber changes from neutral to negative camber (top of wheel moves into carrier) while in motion. While stopped I can manipulate the wheel into various positions (neutral to negative camber), but can't seem to secure it in a neutral (perfectly vertical) position. Carrier is useable (ok for groceries), but not comfortable placing toddler in it. Anyone know how to secure the carrier's wheel alignment?

SOURCE: ink cartridge carrier jam

If possible, shut off the printer completely and manually move the ink carriage to where the cartridges can be swapped out. turn it back on and try again. try to see if some mechanism that holds the missing cartridge in place has swung down and is bumping into something, preventing the carriage from moving past a certain point.

SOURCE: negative camber

Hi...
On your Celica.
Check if the Strut is NOT bent.
Or if the car was not involved on accidente on the front.
Check the Comdittion of the Lower Ball joint, LOwer control arm.

Check if the Camber in your car is adjustable.
Removing the Tire and removing the Bolt that hold the Strut in position. If the Holes in the Strut are Like Oval, is adjustable.
But if NOT. Some Autoparts SELL a Camber kit. That include
New bolt and washers.

But if you Don't want to spend money on the KIT.
Remove the Tire , Remove the 2 Bolt that hold the Strut.
And make the Holes A little oval the holes .
Move a little at front and rear. For make the strut adjustable.
POSITIVE or NEGATIVE..

Ok I hope this help on your problem...
Thank you for use fixya,,,,,,

SOURCE: how do I replace an ink cartridge on NX400?

Assuming that that you have no errors preventing the cartridge change, press the "setup" button, use the arrow buttons to select "maintenance" and press the "OK" button. The carriage will now move to the replacement position. If you have an error condition and you need to access the ink carriage then swith on the printer and when the carriage begins to move across to the left simply pull out the power cable. The carriage can now be carefully pushed into position. Ensure that the carriage is pushed back to the right before turing power back on.

Hope this helps, please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Wheel alignment


If the car is stock then I would run the caster at .05 higher on the right than the left to adjust for the crown of the road. the front alignment looks good other than I am not sure which one is camber and which one is caster. To adjust the rear camber on these cars you have to have a camber kit. From the angle I am seeing you don't have a camber kit. Also the only way to adjust caster on the civic is to shift the sub frame.

1998 gmc jimmy steering measurements


The first thing to do is to have your alignment checked again. Wear on the inside edge usually points to an excessive negative camber problem caused by a bent suspension component or something like a worn ball joint. In some cases it can be caused by excessive toe out.
Alignment shop will be able to diagnose what is causing the neg camber.
Throwing parts at it is not a good idea could be just one part or multiple parts acting together. That's why a reputable alignment shop is in order.

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.

I need toe-in, caber and caster for a Chrysler Sebring Cab 2004


It's toe-in, caster, & camber--all included in a front wheel alignment at an alignment shop--make sure your struts, link rubbers, ball joints, wheel bearings, & tie-rod ends are good first or they will tell you to replace them before alignment(or they should be replaced if worn). An alignment can cost from $35-$100--depending on whether you get a 2 or 4 wheel alignment. Usually the rear is okay--unless the car has been in an accident or has over 200,000 kms.(120,000 miles) on it.

was your car in a wreck since you have own it?
that would be the only way anyone could bend steering or suspension parts.if your tires are leaning out on top,
it would be a part called"lower control arm assembly",
if you stand in front of your car with the steering wheel straight,and your tires are pointing in on each side,or pointed out instead of straight,that would be a "tie rod "
there is an inner tie rod and an outer tie rod end.
you need to take your car to a shop that does alignments,and have them tell you exactly what is wrong,you can even get lower control arm assemblies
from a salvage yard.but do yourself a favor and don't take your car to a MONROE or MIDAS type shop,they are only there to sell and make commissions! Find a normal shop that the owner is the mechanic.
