I am not familiar with this particular car, but every car has a mechanical way of adjusting the steering linkage such that the steering wheel will be centered, even if this means removing the steering wheel and replacing it in the correct spot. A lot of VW's are done this way. What has happened with your car is simply laziness on the part of the technician. He could have insured that your steering wheel was straight through counter adjustments in the steering linkage and properly test driving the car. I do wheel alignments for a living and would never let a car go like this. Take it back, demand it be fixed properly, ask for a print-out of the alignment, if they can't provide a print-out, ask for your money back and take the car somewhere that can.

SOURCE: steering wheel off centre on ford ka, had tracking

if wheel is offline then the person who done the tracking is responsable and take the car back to them and get them to put it right .the correct way is to adjust each track rod end a little bit not all the adjustment on one track end ,which throws out the wheel alignment .this means that you lose steering lock on one side .THIS IS COWBOY BODGE JOB .If they cant or wont put it right then take it to someone who can and report them to the office of fair trading and make a legal claim for the job to be put right

REPLACED STEERING GEAR BOX IN 2003 CADILLAC ESCALADE NOW WHEEL IS OFF CENTERED


IF you have a rack and pinion steering pull the steering shaft of the pinion splines and centre the wheels . Centre the wheel and put the steering shaft back on the splines. If it is master splined then centre the steering wheel and adjust each side tie rod until the wheels are centred . (one in -other out ). Remember that when the wheels are straight ahead then the steering wheel will be slightly to the left (USA) to compensate for the camber of the road.. IF a steering box pull the pitman arm off --centre the wheels and the steering wheel and refit the pitman arm

Steering wheel does not return on turns


jack up the front of the car and see how difficult it is to turn the steering wheels from lock to lock. Allowing for the steering box resistance they should turn freely once you have established movement. If you have power steering you may have to disconnect from the box. What you are looking for here is binding ball joints or king pin bearings . If you are happy that there is no appreciable resistance then have a wheel alignment done paying attention to castor settings as this is what gives the self centring affect to steering. The bigger the angle the harder to turn but the quicker it returns . AS the wheels are turned the vehicle is lifted up because of the angle and when the wheel is let go the vehicle drops back down and so spins the wheel back to centre.. If you have leaf springs in the front I would be checking out the spring camber AS this problem comes from sagging leaf springs turning the axle forward and so putting the castor in negative territory.

When the airbag light started flashing and decided to stay on the cruise control stopped working. you can also hear a rattle in the steering wheel. please help


Its the clock spring under the the centre of the steering wheel. You may find that the horn is not working as well as the cruse control, the clockspring connects the air bag sensor to the airbag in the centre of your steering wheel, it keep the connection in contact as the steering wheel turns.
You could replace it yourself if you take the steering wheel off but remember to disconnect the battery first as fiddling with airbags could cause them to go off!!!!

How to pull steering column for blinker switch replacement


You will need some tools like a steering wheel puller and a few other tools. Take the cover off the steering wheel and the centre nut from the steering wheel. Use the remover to pull the steering wheel. Take the shroud off of the column and you will be able to see what is holding the switch onto the column. Remove the wiring harness and remove screws for the turn signal switch. There might be a star with a pin in the centre. Put the new switch on and put it all back together.
