I got my wheels aligned last friday, but after they adjusted them my steering wheel got
a bit off center, so today i was going to take off the steering wheel and get it centerd properly
i took of the center cover then i took off the horn switch and then i demounted the
center nut but the steering wheel wouldnt come off, what have i forgotten? :confused:

a steering wheel puller. its pressed on there very tight. you need the tool to get it off. and i believe an easier solution would be to bring it back to the shop and have them straighten the wheels out...

I got it off myself, just needed to use a bit more muscle :lol:
Didnt dare to do that last time because i didnt know if i had taken off
all the bits, i just put the wheel i the lowest position and but my knees behind
it and pushed all i could manage and it came off.

I still don't understand why you would remove the steering wheel? Go back to the place that aligned it and tell them to do it right! Now your on-center is not at the center of your steering rack and you can turn more in one direction than the other... ugh. I just fixed that on my Camry and it was a huge pain.

No no it`s not like that, the wheels now have all the right angels and
i have the report from the alignment they did, the wheels was *way* off
before they adjusted them, they just forgot to take the steering wheel
of and corret it, thats all, i did a test drive yesterday and averything is
now in order, normaly when you get your wheels adjusted the steering wheel
wont change center position, the last owner is to blame for the streering wheel
beeing off center

What I'm saying is all they alignment shop has to do is start with the steering wheel in the correct position, align the car, and then they are done. You should never have to remove the steering wheel unless you are replacing it.... that is all.
