Default Not another power steering thread - sorry

I've searched through the forum as I know it irritates when some new bod turns up and fires off a question without looking first.

I have a 54 407 SW, and the steering is heavy only when cold. After a minute the steering is fine. There is no indication of a leak as the fluid levels aren't dropping.

It's in with Peugeot now, and they're suggesting a full bleed and refill to see if that resolves the problem (250), or if not it;s likely the steering rack (2000)

I wonder if the great and good on here would offer some advice on this and whether the bleed is worth it, as the car is certainly not worth a steering rack replacement.

I cant guarantee the results but in the past i have just changed the fluid and added some P/S additive. This will help with leaks and also notchy steering..Takes a while to work but its never got worse

Does the 407 have an electrical connector to it? If so, disconnect and clean that. Always worked a treat on my 307 which was the same.
