2014 Chevrolet Captiva's Service First Generation & Repair Manual provides detailed instructions for removing and replacing (R&R) the power steering line, a crucial component of the vehicle's steering system. Proper maintenance of the power steering line ensures smooth and responsive steering performance.

To begin the replacement process, ensure the vehicle is parked on a level surface and the engine is turned off. Safely raise the vehicle using a jack and secure it with jack stands. Locate the power steering line, which runs from the power steering pump to the steering rack.

Start by placing a drain pan beneath the steering system to catch any leaking fluid. Carefully disconnect the power steering line fittings from both the pump and the steering rack. Use appropriate wrenches to avoid damaging the fittings.

Once the old power steering line is removed, compare it with the new line to ensure correct length and fitting sizes. Install the new power steering line by connecting it to the pump and steering rack, tightening the fittings securely.

After installation, refill the power steering reservoir with the recommended type of power steering fluid. Bleed the steering system by turning the steering wheel fully left and right several times with the engine running to remove any air bubbles.

Finally, check for any leaks and ensure the steering operates smoothly. Properly disposing of the old fluid and power steering line is important for environmental safety. Following these steps ensures a successful power steering line replacement in the Chevrolet Captiva 2014, maintaining optimal steering function.
