    Hi All,
    I know this has been discussed but i cannot seem to find what the problem is via the threads i have recently fitted a Second Hand P.A.S kit to my P6b which had manual steering originally the kit came with the car when i bought it. After fitting the kit i bleed the system via the steering box bleed screw well tried as the pump is not pulling the fluid through nothing is coming from the screw the fluid level is not moving in the reservoir. After much reading on here i decided to open the pump up and change the bearing/vains over the opposite way thinking it may be a p5b pump but this has made no difference so i am at a loss:confused: any help or advice very much appreciated ;)

    Bleed it by jacking the front of the car up and winding the steering from lock to lock quite a few times with the engine running. Don't hold it on full lock for more than a couple of seconds.

    ISTR somebody else on here had the same problem, and after overhauling the pump and trying the vane both ways around, he cured it with a new pump.
