I'm changing the front spheres on my Xantia (W reg 2.0 HDi) myself for
the first time, but when I loosened the pressure regulator screw, I
didn't notice any noise at all. Surely there should be a hiss or
something when the pressure is released? I turned the screw 1 1/2
turns. Suspension was fully lowered prior to this. Engine wasn't
running when I loosened the screw.
If you have fully lowered the suspension then you will have almost
completely depressurised the system. I wouldn't rely on it being completely
depressurised but quite a few Citroen specialists don't bother doing much

No pressure in the accumulator to BE released. Get it changed - it's
perhaps the single most important - certainly the most safety-critical -
sphere on the car, and a flat acc can cause damage to the pressure
