Steering wheel change problems please help
#1
Purchased a berlingo 2013 last year. The steering wheel was badly rubbed down, didn’t bother me until a few weeks ago I though I’d change it... purchased the exact same steering wheel, all was good. 

Disconnected the battery, waited 30 mins.

Faced the wheels straight, took the airbag out no problem at all. Undone the bolt in the middle, removed the steering wheel. 

Attached the new one directly straight. Fed the cables through and Bolted the new
Wheel on. The same
Position the bolt was before. Re fitted the airbag no problems.

Connected the battery, started the van up, the airbag light came on, then I drove around and the steering wheel aims
Towards 3 o clock when driving straight.

Does anyone know what can cause this? I’ve tried it about 4 times
Now and still haven’t fixed it. The wheel faces towards the right when driving straight! Please help!!

So you set the steering straight - i.e. steering wheel at 3 o'clock.  Then take the wheel off, and put it back on at 12 o'clock.  Are you saying that somehow you need to turn it back to 3 o'clock to be straight again?!?

Sorry, but you must be making a mistake somewhere along the line.  Otherwise you've just found a big flaw in Physics itself.

This is what I don’t understand.. there is a circular plastic disc after you take the wheel off and the bolt. Says you need to turn it all the way right until it locks into position, I have no idea what that part is. Taking it into Citroen in two weeks just wondered if it was a common thing as I don’t know what that part is under the wheel and maybe it has to be calibrated for
The power steering. And yes. When my
Wheels are straight I put the steering wheel on straight . Start driving and the wheel goes from 12 o clock to 3.

Sorry but you don’t need to move any plastic disc all the way to the right, and if your wheels were straight when you took the wheel off and put it back straight you can’t get it how you describe! I’m guessing you’ll have broken the clock spring in the com2000 and you’ve somehow hoofed the steering about removing the wheel

For future reference, you undo the centre bolt, leave it in but loose so you don’t crack yourself in the nose with the wheel when it comes free!! And rock the wheel to free it, then remove the bolt and whip off the wheel, do not move the plastic part!!!!!! It will be in the middle of its travel!!

I’m guessing when you’ve put the wheel back on you’ve aligned with with the plastic part and not straight! That’s why it’s out, and the first right bend you went round then broke the clock spring and put your airbag light on! Sorry to say but it’s all your doing Sad

Hiya, when I replaced my steering wheel on a 12 plate it would only fit in one position as there is a slot in it unless you have a different steering wheel may line up in different position
