Took delivery on my C200K 5 days ago.<br><br>
<br><br>
Today I noticed that the steering wheel is not perfectly centered, ie. it's something like '11.55' instead of 12 sharp when you drive straight ahead. Anyone else experienced this?<br><br>
<br><br>
I thought it might have something to do with different pressures in the tires, but that's not the case. What is the problem and what is the solution for it?<br><br>
<br><br>
BTW. What a magnificent ride the new C is! Have never before driven such a silent running car! <br><br>

On my car it is perfectly centered. There are two<br> possible causes <br> <br> 1) incorrect position of the wheel itself (need<br> to move it 1 or 2 teeth)<br> 2) bad front alignment (need to realign front<br> and correctly obey the procedure for centering<br> steering wheel).<br> It is very important not to confuse these two.<br> For example, if you try to correct misalignment<br> by moving wheel itself, you could disrupt<br> operation of ESP (there is a steering angle sensor).
