Steering wheel not straight!

Default Steering wheel not straight!

Having decided to buy my XC60 personally from the lease company, I then proceeded to prang one of the wheels on an unfamiliar car park kerb. As a result the steering wheel is not true centre and the car pulls marginally to the left. The steering feels like you have to keep correcting it even when driving straight.

I was actually stationary when I hit the kerb, but the wheel was turned at an angle as I revved the car and it went up a high kerb and then dropped down again. Damaged the alloy as well.

Had the wheel tracking checked and that was fine. Have read that the steering wheel sensor may need resetting. Anyone any ideas?

Thanks

I think you're in the wrong forum; try here: https://www.volvoforums.org.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=187

This forum is for the new XC60 (and other SPA-based cars).

Surely if the tracking was checked and is OK then a track rod can't be bent?

It does depend on who carried out the check and their level of competence.
