Never known a vehiclehow to bleed power steering - icon1.png to need bleeding of the power steering system - it's self bleeding because it is an open fluid circuit.
BUT - you can make sure you get all the air out of the rack simply by cycling the steering wheels all the way to the right until you hear the pump groan, then all the way to the left, then back and forth a few more times. If there is any air in the steering rack, this should force it out.

Where is the bleed valve for a power steering box


Open the hood and check the level of the power-steering fluid by removing the power-steering reservoir cap. Add the correct fluid recommended in your owner's manual to bring the level up to the full mark. Be aware that fluid that looks foamy is an indication of air in the system. Replace the cap.
Locate the power-steering bleed valve on top of the steering box near the bottom of the engine bay. Follow the power-steering, high-pressure lines from the power-steering pump to the steering box if you have trouble locating it.
Push a 6-foot length of rubber hose onto the end of the bleed valve. Run the other end of the hose into a drain pan.
Start the engine. Loosen the bleed valve fitting slightly with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction. Turn the steering wheel all the way to its stop one way and then the other several times. Shut the engine off.
Close the bleed valve by tightening it with an adjustable wrench in a clockwise direction. Remove the power-steering reservoir cap, and add fluid to bring the level up to the full mark.
Observe the power-steering fluid that came out of the rubber hose into the drain pan. Repeat the above procedure if there are air bubbles in the fluid. Close the bleed valve and remove the rubber hose when there are no air bubbles in the fluid expelled from the bleed valve. Close the hood.

I need to know where the bleed nipple is for a Peugeot 307 estate power steering fluid is. Sorry it says 504 but was no 307 option


hi.

i have never heard of a bleed nipple on power steering.

you just turn the wheele from full right lock to full left lock and back a few times and the system bleed itself.

if there is still a problem after doing this, then it suggests a fault in the compressor, or the rack itself.
