Hi, seems all I do is ask questions round here!

I have a low speed wheel wobble, feels like it coming from the front drivers side. At very low speeds its tugging lightly to the right, similar to driving over a small bump. It does not increase in severity with speed and fades out around 60.

Its been there for the last couple of weeks and I haven't changed anything it that time. I was thinking maybe a wheel weight had been knocked off in the snow but whose are usually noticeable at higher speeds I thought :confused:

I tried to take driver side wheel off only to shear my 3/8-1/4 inch adapter, (no access to air tools) :( passenger side wheel was a little loose so I removed refitted and re tightened.

I have been reading threads that said the forester can be fussy to alignment when you change tyre types but I haven't changed anything. I am thinking I should get alignment checked, then the bearings any other ideas welcome.



There is an oil leak somewhere and its pooling just below the power steering refill point. I seem to remember there was a bit of oil on the drivers side of the engine from when I changed the plugs so it may have been leaking for a while. But I haven't seen it pooling before so maybe its getting worse :confused:
Last time I checked oil level a few weeks ago it was full and now its about half way between the dots. Again any ideas welcome but I may have to pay a visit to Godalming.

Got tyres balanced, they needed adjustment no bulges though.
Toe in on was slightly out and drivers side camber -1'29 degrees out but they could not alter it as the bolts are seized, recommended getting a garage to undo/replace bolts then bringing back.
Wheel wobble still there, may be less but it could be optimistic thinking :)
