Power steering fluid level check
Routine maintenance and servicing / Power steering fluid level check


1 The power steering fluid reservoir is located on the right-hand rear corner of the engine compartment.

2 For the fluid level check, the power steering system should be at its normal operating temperature, so it is best to carry out the check after a run.

3 Position the vehicle on level ground, with }the front wheels pointing straight ahead, and switch off the engine.

4 Check that the fluid level is up to the УMAXФ mark on the reservoir (see illustration).

5 If topping-up is required, first use a clean rag to wipe the filler cap and the surrounding area, to prevent foreign matter from entering the system. Unscrew and remove the filler cap.

6 Top-up the level to the УMAXФ mark, using the grade of fluid specified at the beginning of this Chapter (see illustration). Be careful not to introduce dirt into the system, and do not overfill. The need for frequent topping-up indicates a leak, which should be investigated.
