  1. Hello

    You do most likely still have air inside your power steering fluid.

    Try to do the same procedure a bit more

    Rev the car up a bit and turn the steering wheel max to both left and right, hold it at each stop for ~5-10 seconds. The best way is to have someone to fill the power steering fluid at the same time 🙂
