power steering fluid change
#1
Hi there
I wanna change the power steering fluid.
Is there any "easy" way to drain the system?
I am adding what i have of info (manual) but i cant find that flanges from the steering pipes.
Does anyone have a better manual to do this?

Look on the side of your pinion valve. Some versions each pipe will be separately attached, one with a screw thread and the other with a hose clamp.

If you follow the high pressure pipe from your steering pump to the rack, you'll see the pipe attached beside where the steering shaft enters the rack. This is where you detach it.

Normally there is best access through the wheel arch.

If your just changing the fluid an easier way (unless you have to do it this way) is to just draw some fluid out of the reservoir and top up with fresh. Run it and do it again. This saves the need to bleed it. (We Land Rover drivers are lazy aren't we!)

That was the first thing i tried. I used to do it on my old car like that.
But this reservoir on the berlingo are not that eay to empty, as the most i can suck out of it is 1 dl. reservoir are kinda strange that way.

Used to use some huge hypodermic syringes for getting oil samples when I worked for the Coal Board, don't know if chemists are allowed to sell them or not... Ideal for sucking out old fluid and draining, personally I would avoid disturbing pipeworks as sod's law says it never goes back the same and may start leaking..

I have a decent oil leak free joint at my reservoir above the alternator and I really do want to keep it that way !!

Beyond that .....

Another Land Rover owner - hello !

I use a big syringe with a length of tube on the end to get to the deepest darkest corners of the reservoir and suck it all out. Refill and run the vehicle for a while then repeat until the oil is clean when in duty.

A lazy way ??? who cares it is quick and easy and oil is cheaper than my time and time saved is time to be spent on beer, Land Rovers and taking the dogs out for a run followed by a trip to the pub.

Oh yes having squirted the old oil out of the syringe I use the same set up to suck fresh oil from the new oil bottle and squirt it into the reservoir as it is yet again quick and easy with no mess or decanting etc etc.

Did I mention lazy ? who cares :whistle: It works for me.
