Hey,


Can you tell me what power steering fluid i need for me 2005 407 please?

I fixed the leak but im baffled by what fluid i should put in it now!

Been to Halfords but the unhelpfull lad at the counter couldnt tell me, and i cant find a haynes manual for it (been told they dont do them - not sure if thats true?) I dont have a hand book for it yet either!

Any help apreciated!

hi,this is the fluid listed in peugeot service box.

: For 407 vehicles equipped with power steering with a mechanical pump or with an electropump unit (GEP) : Only use the hydraulic fluid TOTAL FLUIDE DA .

It is called "Fluide DA" and is fully synthetic power steering oil.

I think you will have to get it from a Peugeot or Citroen dealer as I did for a top up. I cannot remember the price but seem to remember that a litre bottle cost me less than 10.

I do not know how you can bleed the system but suspect that you can just run the engine and hence the pump. Perhaps one of the experts can confirm this and advise on how much fluid you need if your leak has lost you all of the original.

Good luck with the problem.

You need to check out first if your pump is mechanical or electric. They use totally different fluids as far as I know. Not wise to mix them, and will cause leaking or even worse mechanical problem.
