Power steering fluid circuit - bleeding

1 Unscrew the filler cap from the power steering pump reservoir and top-up the fluid level to the maximum mark using the specified fluid.

2 Disconnect the low tension negative lead from the ignition coil and crank the engine several times for two second periods while slowly turning the steering wheel from lock-to-lock. Top-up the fluid level if necessary and continue cranking the engine until the fluid is free of air bubbles.

3 Reconnect the coil lead and start the engine. Check the system for leaks.

4 Switch off the engine and refit the filler cap.

5 Drive the vehicle for a few miles to warm up the fluid and expel any remaining air, then stop the engine and make a final fluid level check.
