Steering Wheel

Question: Does anyone else have a steering wheel column that is not straight with the driver seat? Mine kind of points right and is not centered to the dash. Just a bit, but is noticeable.

Is this able to be adjusted?

steering column most likely not adjustable. you will find yourself easier and cheaper to adjust than trying to find someone willing or able to make it straight to your liking.

Sounds like a defect to me. I would mention it to the dealer.

Have you had your front wheels aligned? That may be the cause.

Not the wheel, but the whole column is offset.

We had the same problem. Our was to the left. Took it to a Ford dealer. They found the tie rod ends were not installed centered. They fixed that problem, aligned the front end and re-aligned the steering column. Now everything is fine. Oh, and this was covered under warranty by FR.

This is a steering column adjustment problem. Ours was the same way. See my comment above.

Mine is the same and the dealer initially said that nothing could be done. After I saw the earlier post I stopped at the dealer and another guy at the service said, Sure no problem, bring it Ina we will take it Ford and have them fix it!! I take it in next week for the last list of warranty items, including the steering wheel.
