Undo the two retaining bolts on the engine cover - use a Torx-30 socket. Place it to one side
The power steering fluid reservoir is located here. Always wear gloves
Remove the cap, note the built in dipstick. Be careful not to drip any fluids - have a paper towel handy
You can determine the level using the dipstick. You may need to wipe it clean, fully replace the cap and remove to determine the correct level. Should the level require topping up, refer to the handbook for the correct fluid specification
