Anyone know how to get the steering wheel back to the straight position? Mines cocked to the left when I'm going straight down the road about 45'. My alignment is fine.

Also this wasn't a big enough problem to start a new thread, My odom just stopped working about how much is this to get fixed?

It's stock. WHAT!

The steering wheel needs to be pulled and repositioned....If your alignment was just done the shop should have done this....

If the people who adjusted your tracking manage to get the steering wheel 450 out then they’ve done something wrong I’d recommend you get the tracking re-checked by someone who know what they’re doing. To straighten the steering wheel flick out the badge under that you’ll see the 22mm nut that holds the wheel on (no puller needed)

My steering wheel started to slip off center as the power steering rack was going. But 45 degrees off sounds like too much for that.
