Power Steering Noise At Low Speed 2004 V70

Last Saturday I flushed my power steering fluid with Pentosin CHF202 and the noise has gone away.
CHF202 is the new an improved version of CHF 21S, and it is cheaper too. I bought it at O’Reilly for $16 per bottle (1 liter).
Flushing this system can be done by one man, but if you have an extra pair of hands available use them. When flushing, the fluid comes out very fast and it is only 1 or 1,5 liters you have to get out. It just took a few seconds. You need to have 2 new bottles of CHF 202 ready to fill. All together I used 1 and 3/4 of the new CHF 202.
