Steering wheel 90* off

How do I straighten my steering wheel, it's 90* off to the right? Gear box is centered. Is there a way to take it loose from the box and turn the whole shaft?

Loosen the two nuts on the adjuster sleeve (red arrows) and turn the entire sleeve (yellow arrow) until the steering wheel comes to center. Tighten the bolts back down. Which direction you turn the sleeve and how far depends on which way the steering wheel needs to go and how much it needs to be adjusted. It usually takes a little trial end error to get it perfect but shouldn't take more than two or three attempts.
