TD5 steering box, bleeding method


Recommended Posts

I would be grateful for help in identifying where on the steering box is the bleed nipple that I've heard reference to.

How is it best accessed, please?

Socket size? I guess one is working blind?

Is the system bled with the engine running?

All help will be gratefully received.

Thank you.

You don't really need to bleed the system. Turn the steering to full lock and hold it there for a few seconds, then turn to opposite lock and hold it again for a few seconds. Because the system is both high and low pressure it should bleed itself. If you are unsuccessful, then bleeding is done inside the wheel arch with the plastic cover removed and with the engine running.
