Default Steering Wheel

Had an alignment done recently on a 2003 Accord. The technicians don't
know how, or are impatient in centering the steering wheel. The
alignment is good but the steering wheel needs to be turned a few
degrees to be perfectly centered. Does anyone know how to remove the
face off the sterring wheel? Do you have to unplug the air bag?

Thanks.

You do not turn the actual steering wheel to do this, you adjust the
tie rod ends equally.

Unfortunately you must return the car to the alignment shop for the work to
be done properly.

In Alberta you wouldn't pass an Out-Of-Province inspection with your
steering wheel off center like that. In other words, it's not acceptable
for them to make you pay for substandard work.

Very true. Not only is that what the shop owes you, but changing the
position of the steering wheel also changes the points at which the turn
signals self-cancel. I did that once many years ago and was really unhappy
with the way the turn signals worked.
