I would check thightening of all bolts on suspension, mostly the camber adjusters. If any of them becomes loose, camber could change and steering wheel position will move from centerline to keep car on a straight line. Check idler arm bolts, too.

> Hi All,
> Took the Corsa out for it's first drive this spring. Drove good and it was fun to do.
> Over time the position of the steering wheel of my Corsa has changed meaning it's not nicely centered anymore.
> Of course I could realign the front wheels but I'm curious what could cause this. Didn't hit any curbs or anything like that AFAIK.
> Also some ticking noises from the front when slowly driving over speed bumps. Could of course be two different things.
> Car is up for inspection next month and I want to fix these things. Any ideas what could cause the misalignment and/or the ticking?
