850 2.5 L 20 Petrol - Steering circuit purge

Post by manovlov » Sat May 18, 2019 7:45 am

Hy

I would like to know how I can purge the power steering circuit from Blue. The car is from 1995, and I think to change the liquid wouldn't be a bad idea.

Any tip somewhere ?

On the early cars, most just remove the old oil by sucking it up with a tool like a cooking baster ( tube with rubber bulb, maybe faufilure en Francais? ) and then replacing it, and repeating this three times.

Hy Abscate,

Thanks for your tip. I've found another solution. 2 silicons hoses, plug one to the bottom of the steering reservoir, one on the "return - low pressure hose ", then the 2 hoses in a container. Turn steering wheels on a side, and on another, without forgetting to watch out to the steering fluid level...

I'm planning to go to Germany this Sumer to try to find a 850 with the "Creme" interior in good shape. Blue car + Creme interior could be of the most beautiful effect.

Parts stating to arrive at home. I've received recently my dynasty wrench, my "sway bar". Next week, spark plugs, filters... Again a week to work and then 10 days to follow just for play of the wrenches... Expecting there will be no rain.

A little question : Does someone know what's that thing ?
