Turn the steering from lock to lock.
Check the fluid level. Fill the reservoir if necessary.
Start the engine and allow to idle. Top up the reservoir as air is vented.
With the engine idling turn the steering from lock to lock topping up the reservoir if necessary.
When no further change of fluid level occurs run engine for a further 20 minutes to vent any remaining air.
With the engine idling, turn the steering wheel from lock to lock. If excessive noise is apparent or shudder is evident through the steering wheel, repeat the filling procedure.
