    1. Apply a light coat of engine oil to the O-ring of the power steering oil pressure switch.

    2. Using a 19 mm deep socket wrench, install the power steering oil pressure switch.

      Torque:
      21 N*m  { 210 kgf*cm, 15 ft.*lbf }

      Note


      • Do not allow foreign matter to contact the oil seal face of the power steering oil pressure switch (connecting surface with pressure feed tube).

      • Be careful not to damage the O-ring when installing the power steering oil pressure switch.

    3. Connect the power steering oil pressure switch connector.

  2. ADD POWER STEERING FLUID

  3. BLEED AIR FROM POWER STEERING SYSTEM


    1. Check the fluid level.

    2. Jack up the front of the vehicle and support it with stands.

    3. Turn the steering wheel.
