    Noise when steering

    When i turn me steering wheels sometimes it sounds like there is a hamster wheel running around in me dash, but it only happens sometime

    i told me dad like and he is rather good on his cars to be fair with him, he said its might be the electric steering, the steering fluid or a nosie motor or something like that?!

    Anyone else had this problem or anyone know what it might be?

    Don't think there are any different grades. Think halfords PAS fluid should be ok but I would check with one of the more technical members first

    Looking in your engine bay the power steering resivior is at the rear of the engine bay on the right half way down , all pas/automatic transmision fluid is the same so any will do the job

    right people, got some picture's if they are going to help, found the steering fluid bottle...

    Took he lid off and this is what i saw...

    Took the black filter out(i think thats what you would call it)...

    Realised on the black fliter was a marking near the bottom (marked in a red circle)...


    There is like a little marking on there with a very small arrow, there is fluid on there, just under the arrow....

    Does this mean that the steering fluid is ok? not ok?
