    Hi Daft question, to most, but not if you don't know :confused:, i have a 52 plate w209 320 clk, the power steering i am guessing needs a top up,

    Can you please point me in the right direction to find the tank and level indicator.. would it be under the large plastic rocker box / engine cover. i cant find any details in the cars handbook.

    Thanks for assistance.
    cheers

    You will see the pump on the front of the engine, there will be a tank with a dip stick or marker with a pipe going to the top of the pump

    If you have the same experience as me, they'll sell you a large bottle of PAS fluid. Don't be fooled that you need lots to top it up with as the difference between min & max on the dipstick isn't much more than an egg-cup full.

    The bottle I bought will outlast the car!
