Hello

When you say hand wheel are you talking about the steering wheel? If you are you need to pull it and turn it around. The wheels need to be totally straight and there will be a line up mark on the steering wheel and the shaft and those line up.

If you have never done this before and don t have pretty good mechanical ability . Please have this done. The air bag has to be disconnected for this and if done improperly the air bag could go off or not function correctly in a crash. Also, static electricity can set off the air bag. So it is very dangerous.

You also need to get a steering wheel puller. You might consider taking it somewhere as this shouldn't cost too much to do.

Hello

Also, it looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.
