Couldn't update for some time. I did a DIY clean of the power steering fluid reservoir and drained then topped up power steering fluid.
Method: First thoroughly cleaned the outer body off grime. Then soaked the bottle in a solution of 50% water, 50% petrol and some surf detergent. Let it soak over night and then drain away the solution. Pour petrol from the inlet, shake the bottle and drain. Repeat from all ports and then using pressurised air, get rid of any petrol.
To drain lines, jacked up the car, turned the steering end to end several times. This will drain a lot of fluid. In the end, started engine and turned off within a few seconds.
In the end, refitted reservoir, connected lines and filled the reservoir with fresh Dexron III ATF from Kixx. Keepig the car jacked up, turned the steering wheel end to end several times and topped up again. Then started the engine and turned the steering, topped up again. That's it. Astonishing results.
