    Default steering wheel misaligned after new clutch

    Clutch replaced under warranty. Afterwards the steering wheel was a mile out of alignment, therefore back in and tracked. Dealer said this would solve problem, however the steering wheel is still not 100% straight when going forward. Dealer says nothing more they can do, but surely the wheel should be as it was before they replaced the clutch. I accept that the tracking may be correct as the dealer says and I feel like I'm being picky but there must be something they can do to make the steering wheel straight? and why should the steering alignment be so far out after clutch fitting. Any advice guys?

    Yeah, tell them to get it right or you will go else where and send them the bill. Its onlt a matter of setting it up correctly!

    To change the clutch involves dropping the front subfame so the wheel alignment may well be out afterwards.
    To say you are being picky is a disgraceful remark for them to make. You should go back and tell them to do their job correctly and re-align the wheels as they should be! IE: Steering wheel set in place, straight and then align the wheels :

    For christ sake, it's not exactly hard to get the wheel straight when re-doing the tracking. Its just as easy to do it right as it is to do it wrong.
