Xantia Steering Wheel - Simon Collier
I have a '95 1.9TD LX Xantia, 160k. Reliable car. I had new front tyres put on it at the weekend (probably a red herring) but on Monday I noticed that although it doesn't pull to either side, the steering wheel position has changed - about a 10 degree turn clockwise when going straight. I've had the car for 40k, definately different this week to last. Any idea what causes this?

Very likely to be the tyres. It is more common than folks realise for a new tyre to have a slight bias.

Try swapping them from side to side or front to rear and see what happens.

Of course I assume the guys haven't done something very silly like jacking the car up and catching a track rod arm! Oh and they didn't do the tracking at the same time did they?
