    My C63 was in at merc for a B service on Monday. When I got the car back it had been driven around 2 miles ( checking milage before I dropped it off )

    Now I'm driving it, feel like the alignment is slightly out. Not a huge amount but I have to make more small corrections in the steering than I did pre service.

    Alignment was carried out at the same merc last year..

    Is it worth calling merc or is there a good change they will fob me off..

    Don't they say that it has to be checked/done every six months or so?

    No loss in giving them a call and seeing what they will say though...

    What was the reason for requesting a wheel alignment check / adjustment?

    When I purchased the car in April 2015 the alignment was out. Took it to a local specialist but he kept using incorrect angles etc so then took it to MB and they sorted it out for me, been spot on ever since.

    Post service the steering did feel like it was slightly off but don't want to make any accusations to mb.

    Have you double checked the tyre pressures?

    No. Will do it tomorrow. Anyone suffered from a leaking rear damper on their c63?

    Depending where you live the best wheel aligners I use are wheels in motion based in Chesham. I have taken my last 2 amg's there including my current 2016 CLS. I believe other forum member use them too.
