Steering wheel

#1

I have a 2004 Hyundai Accent. While I had the car in the repair shop a few days ago I saw one of the employees of the repair shop, while sitting in the driver’s seat, turn my front wheels about 90 degrees while the car was not moving and the motor was off. Did he do any damage of any kind to the car? Thank you. Al Brown

No. None at all. The steering wheel is supposed to turn, even with the engine off. BTW, what type of repair was he doing? Some jobs require the steering to be turned like that.
