Hi all just a quick note.

Its worth checking the hoses from your power steering pump that run down the front of the gearbox, if they've fallen off their bracket they can wear a big fat juicy hole in the pipe and pump the steering juice out at a rate of knots.

Ever tried steering 1300 kilos without power steering, marvellous!!

Talk about power steering fluid, have anyone experienced fluid spilling out of the valve in the cap, even if it is not overfilled? :confused:

HI ARDTM155:
I USUALLY CHANGE THE STEERING FLUID ONCE A YEAR WITH CASTROL DEXROM II LIKE THE MANUAL RECOMEND AND IT WORKS VERY WELL.
TRY IT

Hey Jorge, would you happen to know where the bleed valve for the power steering tank is? Also, how many litres does the entire system take up?

Thanks.

HI ARDTM155:
IT DOES NOT HAVE A BLEED VALVE, IT IS IMPOSIBLE TO BLEED COMPLETELY THE SYSTEM, SO YOUY HAVE TO TAKE OFF THE FLUID FROM THE TANK AND REFILL IT WITH A NEW ONE OF A GOOD MAKER, YOU NEED 500 CC.
DOING THIS YOU ARE SURE THAT THE FLUID IS ALMOST NEW, BUT YOU CANT BLEED ALL THE SYSTEM
