    Remember to bleed the air out of the system if you do that. Leave the reservoir cap off, turn the wheels full lock to full lock several times and check the fluid level while doing so, add as needed.

    Is there any bleeding that needs to be done after this procedure? I unhooked the lines under the rack and let them drain, then refilled, ran the car turning the wheels stop to stop a few times. Then while driving later on and during left turns I get a vibration noise/feel? and now just wondering if there is trapped air.

    yes, the system needs to be bled. to do this, you need to put the reservoir under a vacuum for a few minutes.

    OK,
    somewhere I've read that there may be some sort of little metal filter that collects rubber particles or am I smoking crack?

    I'll be using the method the OP used this weekend.

    While I do have some whine at full lock I don't think steering is still when cold in Chicagoland I'm at 100K and I'd like to get this done.

    It's in the reservoir where you fill it. Little plastic(?) strainer.

    I know this is an old thread, however I'm using it as the basis for my PS system work, and I wanted to respond to a couple of the points raised.

    A lot easier.
    This only results in a very small percentage of the PS fluid being drained.

    The filter is integral to the PS fluid reservoir and cannot be removed. I cleaned mine by blasting it with brake cleaner, then letting it dry overnight.

    I was wondering if anyone has put an inline powersteering filter on their car? I know wix makes a universal one. Good or bad idea? Opinion?

    I'm considering draining the reservoir, taking the inlet and return lines off of the reservoir and attaching a barbed coupling to both lines extending the return line to a bucket to catch the old fluid, extending the intake line into a large jug of fresh power steering fluid. I'd have to prime that intake hose with fresh fluid so that there isn't air in it. I'd use some vinyl tubing on the barbed nipple couplings to extend them to the outlet and intake lines.

    I could start the engine to have the fluid start pumping. I was also thinking of just moving the steering wheel back and forth with the engine off thinking it might still move the fluid through more slowly and controllable.

    I do have a hand/pneumatic operated vacuum pump that I could attach to the return line to pull the fluid out while the inlet pulls fresh fluid in. Is there any danger with pulling a small vacuum on the outlet line without the pump running? Damage to seals or something?
