    Does anyone have any ideas on the following problem?

    I have just replaced the power steering pump on my 1993 Peugeot 306
    XLD. Everything is back in place and looks ok but the steering is very
    heavy. I expected the fluid to drain quickly from the reservoir and I'd
    have to fill it up again but it doesn't appear the pump has taken any
    fluid. I tried turning the steering wheel fully from left to right many
    times (over 20) and also driving the car round the street but still no

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Hi, Robert you need to make sure the system is completly bleed, have
    you tried unscrewing the cap, then turning the wheels lock to lock
    until the air is out, are you sure the pump is work properly?

    Yes, I tried turning the wheels fully from left to right with the cap
    off. I am not positive that the pump is good though as it is not brand
    new. Is there any other way of bleeding the system?
