Question about 2005 GMC Envoy Xl
My steering wheel is not straight. it is tilted slightly and everytime I have a wheel alignment I have to fight and argue with GM to fix the problem I've had the vehicle in the shop 7 times now for this problem and 4 different dealerships and no one can fix the problem, hell no one can tell me what the problem is. 05 XL Denali. Anyone else even heard of this.
Off center steering wheel is very common, a good front end man will drive the car/truck and verify that the wheel is centered, it is not a mechanical problem just an adjustment issue, go to an outside shop or another dealer and tell them u just want the wheel straight, remember the road has a slight angle to drain water off, it's called road crown, tell them you want the wheel centered and to take road crown into account when they do it, make sure the front end man double checks the center by means of a good road test on varied road surface, tell them where it is that the off center is most noticeable, all this is from personnel experience, I am a fanatic about the wheel being centered. If u have more questions fell free to ask, sorry for your justified frustration on this issue.

You can fix this yourself.
The steering wheel is fixed to the steering column by a screw nut. The steering column has splines, just make sure the wheels are straight, remove the nut and pull of the steering wheel, center the steering wheel and push it in position on the steering column spline and replace the nut and tighten etc.
The easiest method is suggested by emissionwiz. The mechanics at the dealership should center the wheel and clamp it in position before doing the wheel alignment.
