    Default i can't locate the power steering fluid

    I have a 52-reg(25th/10/2011) vectra 1.8 elegance 16v. My power steering light has come on on the dash and also been shown as "please check the power steering fluid level" on the on-board computer, I wanted to top up the P/S fluid, but could not locate it under the bonnet.

    Could anyone tell me where the power steering fluid is located. any example photos? as that will be easy to find it out.

    Cheers

    On the 1.8 it's on the steering rack, behind the engine. The larger engines have less room there, so it's relocated to the front. The Haynes manual shows it nicely - so pop into a book shop or Halfords and have a sneaky look

    Some 1.8's are in the inside the front wheel arch and some are on the steering rack behind the engine, just below the brake fluid reservoir, its just a matter of looking. Easiest is the one to find is behind the engine, white bottle with a black cap.

    Make sure you use the proper fluid from Vauxhall, it's not the generic red ATF that older power steering systems use.

    Have topped up mine before (2.2 dti). Not that hard. Just remove the wheel and undo the three lower torx screws in the arch liner. Pull it forward and reach in to unscrew the cap (green bottle). Then remove the filter from in the top of the bottle. I then lowered a length of hose pipe in from the top (bonnet open), and poured the fluid down this (use a funnel), to top it up. Difficult to see the level, so just do a bit at a time, and feel in the bottle neck for the fluid at the MAX line.
