Default Tracking issue

hi i recently my 407 sw 2.0 hdi failed its mot and had some remedial work carried out it had a number of things such as os lower ball joint, cv gaiter, front discs and pads along with a four wheel alignment. then yesterday my partner drove 250 mile journey complaining that the car tracking was out as it was pulling to the left so i told her to get the car in to be tracked. my advice to her once it had been don was to test the car on a dual carriageway to check all is ok and it was untill 30 minutes later after parking and setting off again she heard a clunk and the tracking was off again causing the car to pull once again to the left.
has anyone else experienced this issue or could anyone tell me what it might be.
Thanks in advance

i would but the garage that did the work and mot is in north wales where we live and my partner is visiting family in reading with the car. she took the car back to kwikfit where she had the 4 wheel alignment and they checked the tracking again and it showed that it was off again only 1 hour after it was track originally. she has managed to get it into a garage on wednesday as kwik fit wont touch it so hopefully it wont be too expensive

Fault or incorrectly fitted track rod end or maybe damaged by mechanic

Mine failed mot on the track rod when I had it replaced the previous owner had used the wrong part with a smaller bush on the end and just packed it with washers and torqued it up but eventually it wore and started to clunk and move could this be your problem ?

Just recalled that I had to get a new hub cos the wrong size track rod had been moving around and elongated the hole that connected it to the hub

UPDATE: my other half took the car to a local garage near her parents and they have gone through everything this morning and the mechanic has said the drivers side ball joint has excessive play which is very bad but he said he cannot find anything else that is wrong. he also noted that the ball joint that had been changed on the passenger side for the mot look like it was changed a lot longer than four weeks ago.

could the drivers side ball joint cause the tracking to be thrown out over and over again within hours of the vehicle being tracked??

No the balljoint is not a balljoint it is a bearing and sometimes have play but are ok without seeing it its hard to say.

Regardless of that fact the tracking moving when on full lock indicates something to do with the steering is loose more than a balljoint or track rod end/hub attachment it is more serious than that from reading what you have posted.

I would not be driving it till you are sure of what is going on i doubt its the balljoint alone as if it was that once it settled it would stay settled your description sounds like something is constantly readjusting the steering !!

Check the 3 bolts holding the ball joint in these have been known to come loose.
