    Central hydraulic fluid. About £15 from the stealers. Just ask for the green power steering fluid.

    Best to use the genuine Vauxhall stuff, as it's a 'sealed for a very long time' electric system. It's quite a specific oil you have to use, rather than the older engine driven power steering systems where you use any old Dexron type ATF. If you do a search on here, you're bound to find the part number - but it's the same on most 2002 onward Vauxhalls (eg Astra G) so the parts counter of your local Vauxhall dealership will know what you need.

    Filler bottle is either on the rack itself behind the engine (mainly 1.8 and 1.9's) or under the driver's side headlight (most other engine sizes)
