Don't attempt to do this yourself. It would involve messing with the airbag which is NOT a good thing for an amateur to do!. Its probably also the wrong repair.

If it was OK when you drove away from the free re-alignment(and I guess for a short while afterwards), then I'd have to say that the dealer has no responsibility to do this if it re-occurs, as it is lkely to be due to rough treatment such as potholes, too fast over traffic calming measures, or kerbing the wheels.

If it is not centered immediately after a "re-alignment" then the dealer has been sloppy and not clamped the wheel perfectly straight before adusting the alignment.
