Hi Rob, and welcome.

Easy enough error to make, I would ensure that I don't start the car (in case of circulating the fluid, and damaging the seals).

You will need to drain and flush the system through with power steering fluid, then bleed off any air remaining.

I don't know the specifics for your car, but would presume that a haynes manual (or someone who has changed the fluid on their car) will be able to advise of a drainage point.

Hope that helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
