    Bleeding power steering lines

    I just replaced my power steering pump (what a f****** pain in the ass let me tell you that) and there is a crap load of air in the lines. With the car on and the cap off of the reservoir it looks like water boiling, there are bubbles everywhere. So my question is what is the proper way to bleed this, pops says i might have to take it somewhere because theres a certain way to do it. Anyone have any input? Thanks

    Fill it up, wheels off the ground and turn back and forth like at least 20 times. I have a special cap for my resivoir that i made to hook up to my vacuum pump to remove air from systems
