Power steering air lock
Changed the powersteering pipes on the weekend. One horrible job as one of the original pipes began to leak due to rust. These solid 7mm pipes are situated under the 146 rack, one short one long and fit into the rack with banjo fittings.
I tested the car lock to lock with new fluid and all seems well. On the weekend after doing about 20 miles the steering began to feel stiff occasionally - I tested the level of fluid and it's all OK - Could there be a blockage/leaking seals- Before I started I didn't have any problems - But the MOTs due next week so I had to get it done!!
