The power steering fluid reservoir is located under this protective cover. Always wear gloves
Release the plastic retaining plugs and carefully remove the cover to gain access
Look for the MAX-MIN positions on the side of the translucent body, or use the built in dipstick provided. 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
If topping up is required, remove the cap. Be careful not to drip any fluids - have a paper towel handy
When finished, replace cap securely
