    Thread: Location of Power Steering Fluid Reservoir

    1. 08-13-2019 08:10 AM #1
      Hi all,

      Yesterday I encountered a problem with my Fox's power steering (a light on on the dash, wheel stiff to turn etc.), so thought to try and top up the power steering fluid to fix it. Problem is that I can't find the reservoir - had a good look around under the bonnet but can't spot it. I've tried searching online but couldn't see anything of relevance. Could anyone tell me where it is? This is an '09 plate Fox.

      Apologies if something like this has been asked before but I couldn't see anything similar. Thanks in advance

      Not sure how many members of this forum own the newer Foxes; we're all enthusiasts of the 1988-1993 models. Maybe this forum could be sub-divided into "old Fox" and "new Fox".

      I can't answer your question directly, but maybe getting a service manual is beneficial. Or asking for assistance on a "new" fox page, like on Facebook. Good luck!

      I'm not aware of anybody in this forum having a European Fox. Or a South African one. Or a Brazilian SpaceFox. Seems to just be the North American ones from 1987-1993, which are completely unrelated to your car and don't have power steering.
