Hi. I have recently done some work on the power steering of my 98 Altezza SXE10 which required the system to be drained. My question is - When refilling with fluid, do I need to bleed it in any way or is it self bleeding when running? Thanks


Hi there,
The systems are generally self bleeding, you might need to fill it and start the engine and switch off straight away and repeat the process till the reservoir level rests on the cold mark. Then turn the steering a few times to get the pump working and see if there is any air in the system.
