Default Car question. How come when I get an oil change or anything, they change the steering wheel...

...position & lights? I turn the lights on maybe 3/4s the way so that the lights for the radio, money/cigarette tray etc are brighter. They always turn it back down.































Also how come they change the steering wheel? Is that just whoever's height and comfortablitiy or is there a reason for it (steering wheel fluid or something will leak)































thanks

maybe when they sit it in to drive it in the shop, they adjust the stuff to their settings..































but if your just doing an oil change, you just drive in, shouldnt need them to

They probably just change the wheel position so they can fit into the car or safely move it. Has nothing to do with any maintenance test. As far as turning down the lights goes, I have no idea - maybe they just bump the switch/dial by accident?































You might want to write down the exact mileage of your car when you drop it off next time - there's a (probably slim) chance someone is driving your car around without your permission but things are most likely just getting changed around so that the tech can fit in the car long enough to pull it into the service bay.
