Just been hit in the rear and noticed a discrepancy with the gaps between rear wheels and wheel arch behind doors gap is about 1cm less on drivers side than it is on passenger side. should it be the same. Only asking as I know some years ago renault 14's were built like this one rear wheel was set forward of the other apparently it was to improve road holding and you could only tell if you went over a raised ridge on a road as you noticed one wheel would go over very slightly before the other. I dont think it's normal on a C-Max however but thought i would ask..... Just in case i'am wrong

I would say that something has moved! An alignment check is in order I think. Check also for the camber on the rear wheels. It's independent rear suspension, so hopefully only one side has moved.

04 plate Ink Blue 1.8 Duratec Ghia. Mods so far, club sticker on rear window and stereo upgrade, 4Q sticker on bootlid and Smurf hanging from rear bumper.

More mods to come as i\'m allowed to.
