Unhappy Power steering issue - bleeding it?

407 2lt HDi 50plate - I read that I maybe getting air in my PAS, therefore the PAS fails on turning left occasionally. Can someone advice me, or send me a link to a www site that shows me? I have owned 205Gti, 407 MI-16 and a LeMan, the 407 is a joke of a Pug, the is ride far too hard, the turbo far to late to kick in... just a dog, but a 5k dog so I need to keep it a while..

Usually if turning left is difficult it's a lack of fluid, to bleed it's usually lock to lock with engine running and some just sit with engine running

Total fluide da is the correct oil. Overfill the reservoir to stop it getting aerated.

The turbo kicks in at 1500rpm, so I wouldn't really say that's late?

The Mi16 though, kicks in at 5000rpms, that's a bit later

Turbo on the 2.0HDI should be well in by 2200 revs, I barely take mine to revs about 2000 and its pulling like a train, easily from 1500 upwards.

I'm amazed to read your first post too, saying the 407 is a hard ride... has yours been tinkered with, as mine is far from hard, its firm and well placed but not hard.

thanks a lot for the advice, will try this.... I note there is pas fluid on the top of the pas pipe/area (v. slight leak), guess the cap/washer need replacing too.

We have the same car.. 407SW - Silver at dusk! I don't think its been tinkered with, just feeling every lump and bump, its not Peugeot esq at all... I need to find a local Pug man that knows his pugs, rather than main dealer.. Can't be dealing with 75per hr and "looks ok to me sir!" attitude.. My service spanner came on after the 80k service, after 700 miles, took it back to dealer, they reset it to 20k, 1700 miles later, came on again.. whats that all about! (Its done 80k now, I had the service done at 76k)... I bought it last July at 72k. What MPG do you get, mine is 39..
