CHECKING THE POWER STEERING FLUID LEVEL

WARNING

Power steering fluid is highly toxic. Keep containers sealed and out of the reach of children. If accidental consumption of fluid is suspected, seek medical attention immediately.

WARNING

If the fluid comes into contact with the skin or eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water.

WARNING

Take care not to spill power steering fluid onto a hot engine - a fire may result.

CAUTION

Do not start the engine if the fluid level has dropped below the MIN mark. Severe damage to the steering pump could result.

CAUTION

Seek qualified assistance immediately if there is a noticeable drop in the fluid level. Severe damage to the steering pump could result.

CAUTION

If fluid loss is slow, the reservoir may be topped up to the upper level mark to enable the vehicle to be driven to a repair facility for examination. However, it is recommended that you seek qualified assistance before driving.

Check and top up the fluid with the vehicle on level ground, the engine switched off, and the system cold. Make sure that the steering wheel is not turned after stopping the engine.

The level of fluid can be seen through the translucent body of the reservoir.

The fluid level should be between the MIN and the MAX marks.
