So I had a pretty spectacular fall going downhill yesterday, and now the red part at the bottom of the steering column is tilted slightly to the left. Steering works, but because it's tilted it feels weird. I have to move more to the left than to the right to steer with equivalent force.

Is this something that can be fixed by me, or do I need to go through the seller to get it fixed?

Also I have an owie on my knee!

Hello ;)

First ask your seller for know repair fees and ask him  if you repair it yourself about warraty

After, if you are not satisfied, you can repair it yourself, and buy a new spare parts

I took the bar assembly apart and put it back, but that didn't help. I think the actual steering bar inside is crooked as well, but I won't go that far inside.

if there was a shock the steering shaft may have broken, or the hall sensor has been impacted...

I don't think anything is broken, since it works just fine, even if I have to bend farther to the left than to the right to get the same angle. 

Which of course is the knee I hurt, so testing it is NOT fun right now.

Went to the store, and they could either 

a. Send my ninebot to the distributor, who could send it to a workshop, who could then after two weeks quote me a price, or

b. Not. 

I went with b. I'm gonna try to jigger some sort of equalizing thing so I can safely turn left again.

What I am going to say is strange, it has happened to me and also to several friends, for me it is a car that hits me and the rudder is about 3 centimeters to the right, which leaves a very uncomfortable driving.

We solve it, not only me in my Plus, but also several people in both Plus and Pro, turning the address bar strongly towards the opposite side, with the same force as the blow you gave him.

It seems strange, but it works, just as you lean to one side, you do the same but you go to the other side.

I understand that you do not want to try it, but it works. These devices are strong, it is not going to break, as you could see by the blow you gave yourself.

I would be a liar if I claimed the thought hadn't struck me... The main problem is getting the exact amount of force - I could see myself getting into one of those scenes from old movies where I keep making it worse...

I think the perfect solution would be a vise and huge pair of pliers combined with a level and a strong man do actually do the work for me. 

You know, a workshop :)
