    Default Power steering problem? Help appreciated.

    Hi guys.

    I have a Fairly quiet sort of whining / droning noise coming from my Vectra SRi.

    This is mostly heard when I am stationary (say at traffic lights).

    The noise stops when I turn the wheel (even slightly)... But then returns.

    I wonder if it is just needing power steering fluid? I have found the reservoir but not sure what the correct level should be, I would say mine is about half full. Should it be to the line on the dipstick??

    Also not sure what fluid to use to top up..

    Vectra SRi 2008(08) 1.9 CDTi.

    Thanks.

    If it is the reservoir under the headlamp, there are two marks on the side and the level must be between these two marks
    These Power Steering units are dreadfully noisey

    Mine is at the back of the engine bay below the oil filter.. Cannot see any markings on the reservoir itself nor the dipstick.. However there is a change in the thickness of the dipstick itself so I'm assuming this may be the 'level mark '?
