Hi all have a 93 coupe , 58K miles on it. Previous owner was a "BIG" guy and used the steering wheel to pull himself up& out of car. Now as result of that repetitive action , the steering wheel is pulled off center to the right anybody have a quick fix for this situation? It's only out by 1/2 or 3/4" measuring from a straightedge across the wheel and back the dash. Feels odd when driving it. Thanks for any suggestions

loosen all the bolts that mount the steering column and the bracket to the dash.....center your steering wheel as much as possible....retighten.

I hope that works for you.
Seems to me if it is off by as much as you stated; something is bent.
could be the steering wheel itself, or the steering column housing.
