    Steering Wheel on a wonk

    Hey guys.

    Had my Dual Mass Flywheel + Clutch + Slave Cylinder replaced today by a friend who's a mechanic.

    When I got the car back I took it for a drive and realised the steering wheel is on a wonk.

    Say you're going forward in a straight line, the steering wheel is at about 11 o'clock.

    I've done a search and i'm thinking it needs a 4 wheel alignment.

    Just want to check what everyone thinks? Alignment sound right?

    Thanks

    So did he remove the wheel, mess with tie rods or rack, if so then just ask him to fix the issue.

    Yeah I expect so. He defiantly had the wheels off it.

    It's about 60 miles away so wondered if I could get it done where I am cheaply, hence hoping for the 4 wheel alignment. But if you think it's not that then i'll have to let him know and wait a while until I go back.

    Drives me mad it being on a wonk.

    It's the little things haha

    Thanks man

    Not really

    Gearbox can be dropped out without touching the subframe
