Re: xf steering adjustment

look just behind the R/H/F wheel you will find a hole in the inner guard & this will give you access to the steering box adjuster, undo the nut & then adjust up the alen key in the middle

do not adjust it with the wheel straight ahead as it will end up to tight, turn the wheel half a turn & adjust it there

regards
rod
