seat Ibiza 2003 1.9tdi 100BHP

hi, I have a seat Ibiza 2003, after replacing the wishbones, one wheel is sitting about 2 inches further forward then the other side, I pulled the problem wishbone back with a ratchet strap, after releasing the tension it went back to being wrong, what could this be ?

Wrong parts.............
Assembled wrong...........

Who knows? The car needs to be inspected to find out what the problem is. We don't have that vehicle here so i don't have any specifics.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

Also, no info on this and think you mean what I would call a control arm for wishbone. Doesn't matter but if wheel isn't exactly in place after replacing or messing with one it's all wrong.

Some could use shims or washers offset like an ellipse for adjustment. As Hammer just said it needs to be inspected for correct parts or not or improper installation and don't wait!
