    Power Steering Fluid Reservoir location - Where is it?!

    Hello all

    Only today i heard a very low (almost inaudible) whine/squeak when i was turning the steering wheel in a car park (almost stationary speed). Been reading about the noise and seems it could be low power steering pump fluid or some trapped air (also probably due to low fluid).

    I opened the engine bay to check level of fluid but could not find the reservoir! I also consulted the official manual but the reservoir for the power steering fluid is not shown!

    Can anyone please tell me where this reservoir is located!

    Many thanks

    My 2004 s type needs the power steering fluid topped up, the handbook does not specify any particular type, what should I be using?? Hopefully I can purchase it in a small amount as it is just below the minimum level.
    appreciate your help.

    Mobil ATF 320 dex111 is the recommended power steering fluid. I have never seen it in smaller bottles than 1 litre.
