    Default C5 front end wanderlust

    2005 HDi C5 auto.

    At about 70kmh+ (and certainly at 80) there is a front end weirdness that is disconcerting.

    Before going to the doctors .... any thoughts?
    The car does a small, random wander. Like a •vague steering• kinda feel. But as I say, disconcerting, and potentially dangerous if some part is giving up.

    On the ground, I gave both front wheels an attempted top to bottom and side to side wobble but nothing seems loose.
    Once upon a time:


    Many R4s (incl. fourgonnette), R5LS, R16TS.


    GS 1015, 1220, sedans and wagons.
    CX 2200, 2400.
    ID 1966, 1969, DS21H, DSpecial, DS23 Pallas.
    C5 2002, 2004 petrol and diesel.
    sold ..... D Special 1974 ... to fellow Tassie AFer.
    sold ..... Xantia Activa 1998 (look out Gulargambone)
    sold .....GS 5 speed sedan (what a tale)
    sold .... 1986 2CV6

    And now:

    C5 2.2 HDI 2005 wagon
    CX25GTi 1985 auto
    CX2500 IE Pallas 1985 auto
    DS23 1973 Pallas
    DS23EFI 1975 Pallas
