Power steering over full

Noticed today that once warm the power steering fluid is just above the max mark, will this hurt or should I syphon some out

If it is at or below the max mark when cold I would leave it. The oil will expand slightly when it is warm.

The only issue that is likely to happen with an overfull reservoir is oil leaking from the cap.

I think you should only check with the wheels straight - parking with a bit of lock on can raise the level
