Hi all,

Want to freshen up the Power steering fluid it's this set up. image.jpg

I tried using a Baster and I could only get a small amount out from the cap, as there's a mesh in the way. Any help on how to drain and fill with new fluid appreciated. Ta

You can either pull one of the hoses from the rack and drain it down there, or repeatedly do what your doing with the baster. Eventually you will get 90% + fresh fluid into the system.

Ta, do you know which of the nuts in the rack, one is above the other?

Sorry for delay, don;t be on here much now - either one of the banjo bolts - but be careful retightening as they sheer easily.
One is flow and one is return at any one time (depending on how your locking the steering) - so either, then turn wheel slightly but make sure you have someone topping up constantly (dont run the pump dry)
