Power steering query...
#1
My power steering seems to work fine, but when I go full lock left or right there is a loud hiss at the end of the travel, is this normal or something that requires a closer look?

Thanks Smile

Sarcasm ??? my wife says I don't possess a sense of humour.

No quite normal and not just for Citroen, it is the oil passing through a pressure relief valve.

Pulsing can be relieved by using new fluid, perhaps not cured but usually much improved.

I used to get pulsing on my old Volvo 740. Don't know if the cause and the cure are the same, but it happened when the fluid got low, there was always a leak. After topping up I turned the steering from lock to lock a few times (best done when the car is stationary! especially on the 740 which had a fantastic turning circle - the only thing I miss in the Berlingo) and that did the trick. I think it bled the air out.

Thanks for pointing it out.
