Question about 2005 Hyundai Sonata
A lever on the left side of my steering column allows you to position the steering wheel at different angles. I took my car in for an alignment and new tires. They had adjusted my steering wheel in a very low position. I moved the lever to adjust my steering wheel where I normally have it. I went to leave the repair shop and when I turned the wheel the entire steering column moved and it now moves about a quarter of an inch all the time. This was in Tires Plus parking lot. The manager came out and said they could not have done anything because the steering column is a sealed unit and it can't be tampered with. My steering wheel does not lock into a position and stay fixed. Please help. I think the alignment person who took the car for a test drive forced the steering wheel to his liking and broke something so that it does't lock into a position, there is play.
When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps
