Very simple!!! I posted this under how to bleed the steering system in the "Tips" section....you can do this yourself and is very easy.

Sebring Coupe And Avenger

  1. Check the power steering fluid level, and add if necessary.

Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, DEXRON II automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle to lift the front wheels off the ground.
  2. Manually turn the pump pulley a few times.
  3. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and to the right 5 or 6 times.

If bleeding is attempted with the engine running, air will be absorbed in the fluid. Bleed only while cranking the engine.

  1. Disconnect the ignition high tension cable and, while operating the starter motor intermittently, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and right 5-6 times for 15-20 seconds. During the bleeding procedure, make sure the fluid in the reservoir never falls below the lower position of the filter.
  2. Connect the ignition high tension cable, then start the engine and allow it to idle.
  3. Turn the steering wheel left and right until there are no air bubbles in the reservoir. Confirm that the fluid is not milky and that the level is up to the specified position on the dipstick. Also confirm that there is very little change in the fluid level when the steering wheel is turned. If the fluid level changes more than 0.2 inches (about a 1/4 inch), the air has not been completely bled. Repeat the process.

    // // 0) preLoad.src = ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_ImageArray[i]; } ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.lastIndex = 26; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.populateLog = theForm.elements['ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_PopulateLog']; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.treeViewID = 'ctl00$cphLeft$chRepairTreeNav$tvTOC'; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.name = 'ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data'; //]]> var _strTreeScrollHidName = 'ctl00_hidTreeScrollPos'; how to bleed  power steering system to a 1997 - c17hydro_19.gif

      Check whether or not the fluid level changes between when the engine is running and when it is stopped

    Once repairs have been made and fluid level is brought up to full mark, all that needs to be done to bleed the system is 1)start car 2)turn wheel all the way to one side, then the other. Do this a few times and the system should be free of air.

    Chrysler Cirrus/Stratus/Sebring/Avenger/Breeze 1995-1998
    Power Steering Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring Convertible and Breeze
    (see Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4)
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
    2. Siphon as much power steering fluid out of the reservoir as possible.
    3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    4. Remove the right front tire and wheel assembly.
    5. Remove the splash shield from the right front wheel well.

    Fig. 2: Power steering pressure hose attachment to the pump-without Variable-Assist steering
    1. Disconnect the power steering pressure hose from the pump.
    2. Remove the hose connection on the power steering pump.

    Fig. 3: Typical power steering pump front bracket attachment
    1. Remove the power steering adjusting bolt.
    2. Remove the power steering pump rear attaching bolt.
    3. If so equipped, remove the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) hydraulic control unit heat shield.
    4. Remove the wheel speed sensor retainer bracket from the right inner fender.
    5. Remove the wheel speed sensor sealing grommet from the right inner fender.
    6. Disconnect the speed sensor wiring.
    7. Push the wiring through the hole in the inner fender.
    If not equipped with anti-lock brakes, the hole will just have a sealing plug.
    1. Remove the bolt attaching the power steering front bracket to the mounting bracket. Access to the bolt is gained through the hole for the speed sensor wiring.
    2. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
    3. Remove the power steering pump and the front bracket as an assembly.
    To install:
    1. Install the power steering pump and bracket.
    2. Reinstall the bolt at the adjusting slot, but do not tighten.
    3. Reinstall the bolt mounting the power steering pump to the rear mounting bracket, but do not tighten.
    4. Reinstall the power steering pump top bolt, but do not tighten.
    5. Reconnect the power steering hoses.

    Fig. 4: Install a new O-ring gasket on the hose fitting
    Use a new O-ring when reinstalling the power steering pressure hose.
    1. Reinstall the drive belt.
    2. Adjust the drive belt and tighten the power steering pump bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
    3. Reinstall the splash shield.
    4. Reinstall the tire and wheel assembly.
    5. Lower the vehicle.
    6. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
    7. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.


    Sebring Coupe and Avenger
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Remove (drain, suction pump, etc.) as much power steering fluid as possible.
    3. Disconnect the return fluid line. Remove the reservoir cap and allow the return line to drain the fluid from the reservoir. If the fluid is contaminated, disconnect the ignition high tension cable and crank the engine several times to drain the fluid from the gearbox.
    Cover any components located underneath the power steering pump with a shop towel to protect them from damage due to power steering fluid spillage. For example, the A/C compressor or alternator, depending on vehicle and engine, is below the power steering pump, so cover the A/C compressor or alternator with a shop towel before removing any hoses.
    1. Loosen (but do not remove) the power steering pump mounting bolts and remove the drive belt.
    2. Remove the pressure switch connector from the side of the pump.
    3. Disconnect the pressure line.
    4. Unbolt and remove the pump from the mounting bracket.
    To install:
    1. Clean all parts well. Inspect the pump pulley for cracks. Check the hoses carefully for cracks or signs of weakness.
    2. Install the pump, wrap the belt around the pulley and lightly tighten the mounting bolts.
    3. Replace the O-rings and connect the pressure line. Connect the pressure line so the notch in the fitting aligns and contacts the pump's guide bracket. Tighten the fitting to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
    4. Connect the return line and secure with the clamp.
    5. Fasten the pressure switch connector.
    6. Adjust the power steering belt for proper tension and tighten the adjusting bolts.
    Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, ATF+3 automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system of Sebring coupe and Avenger models.
    1. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.

    Hope this help to solve it (remember comment and rated this). TY for using Fixya.

    I changed the front pads on my 97 Sebring convertible. Also put on new rotors, and changed the calipers. My car bounces slightly, and if I apply the brakes hard, they become spongy. I have bled them off as...


    Spongy means air present in the hydraulic system,I recommend check and recheck all of the brake system areas where air could enter(master cylinder,fittings,calipers,etc.)and bleed the entire system again.
    Good luck !
