MG MGF Technical - Misaligned steering wheel

The steering wheel on my MGF VVC is misaligned and about 5 or so degrees to one side so the car pulls to one side when driving on a straight line.

Any ideas as to what the problem could be and how easy it is to get it fixed?

You need 4 wheel tracking done on the car Dan. Have you hit a kerb recently?

Thanks. I haven't hit a kerb that I know of, but I'm not the only one who drives the car.
Is this a big/expensive job?
D Allison

It's not a lot unfortunately I haven't got a price because it was included in my last service. It's worthwhile getting done asap to prevent excessive tyre wear.

A misaligned stearing wheel will not make the car pull.

Options include a 'flat' tyre, bad tracking, worn bushes, worn bearing, sticking brakes, bad road surface*.

The wheel should end up straight if you get the tracking done - and all of the above should be obvious, but you must fix them before getting the tracking done or it will effect the outcome.
