    right,, contary to Veccy22's inaccurate info, the power steering resevoir and pump is to be found under the drivers side headlight..access is greatly improved by taking the front bumperskin off and you can get all the access to top it up you need and you can also see the levels better, there is a dipstick in the cap on top of the reservoir.

    nope, not without a lot of greif... the bumperskin is easy to remove.. takes about 10 mins...just undo the 3 screws in the front of the wheelarches that go into the bumper, prise out the 2 plastic plugs in the bumper by the headlights, and remove the 4 plastic plugs under the front of the car....then just start peeling the bumper out of the wing slides, put your hand in behind the bumper on the line that it joins the wing at, pushing it out, work forward on one side, then repeat on the other, and the skin will come off..
