Hello everyone,
Hoping I could get some help here about an issue that has been driving my a bit crazy.
I bought a used Mini One 1.2 Petrol with around 40k Kilometeres.
So what happens is when i am driving sometimes on accelaration (soft or hard), the steering wheel jerks left or right while on a straight line and good road. Also sometimes , for a brief second, it seems as the steering wheel loses all "grip" and it feels like I drove through a spot of ice!
I´m driving at have no feeling/feedback from the road.
It´s really odd and hard to describe..
I´ve bought 4 new Hancook tires and had direction aligned and remained the same.
And the seller said everything was fine...:rolleyes:

Any ideas...?
Thank for your time and excuse my poor English

Just small update, been reading alot and I have decided to substitute the 4 front control arm bushes. Going to import the Powerflex bushes and take it from there. See if things get better...

So.... :)
The Powerflex bushes have arrived, but the local shops look at this stuff as if it was rocket science!
Anyone have "idiot" proof instructions on how to properly install these?
