But as far as I know, the i20 comes with Electric Power Steering from 1st Generation itself.
So there arent any "Oil Seals" in Power Steering of i20.

Get the Bushes of Anti-Roll Bar checked and replaced if necessary. The Bushes cost me ₹180/- for our Elite i20 CRDi. I got them replaced at 42502Kms. Now the reading is 90443kms.

Hey guys,

I have been facing a steering issue on my Etios Liva since the past few months. As you can see in the below pictures the steering wheel is slightly off-centre counter clockwise. Initially I thought it could be a wheel alignment issue. Raised this issue at the service center where they did a wheel alignment, but the issue remained as it is.
Later when I replaced the tyres, I again got the wheel alignment done but to no avail.
Then during the the last service at an FNG raised this issue again. The mechanic did the wheel alignment. It felt slightly ok for the initial days but it was back to square one.
Any of you who might have faced this might know how disconcerting this is.
Now recently I was checking out some YouTube videos on off-centre steering wheel and came across quite a few videos which I feel could rectify my car's problem. I have shared couple of links below for your view and maybe can confirm if this is the problem.
I can discuss with my mechanic and get this rectified in the coming week.
Please give your suggestions.
Pics and YouTube links below:
Please note that one of the videos has lot of cuss words.
