    Thread: Power steering fluid location 2001 Passat

    1. 03-04-2007 03:11 PM #1
      Hi,

      Can anyone tell me how to refill power steering fluid in a 2001 Passat? I've checked the manual and there is no indication where to refill it at. Not to mention the pictures in the owners manual do not match my engine. I was able to locate every other fluid case except this one.

      Thanks, I suspect this might be it but believe it or not, the pictures in my manual omit it. I can't thank you enough.

      Any issue with using Prestone?

      Yes. Do you want to end up buying a new rack? Anything other than the OEM fluid will result in failure of the seals. You need CHF 11

      If you don't want to get bent over by the dealerships you buy it online from any of the following places for about $17 - $18 per liter.
