2011 Giulietta JTDM having PS issues. Went very heavy a few weeks ago and is now fluctuating between light and heavy whilst driving which is just dangerous.

Thought I'd top up fluid as a first test and...where the ***** is the filler? Couldn't find it so, based on the fact I know my way around and engine, decided it must be electric...until I spotted the sticker telling me which fluid to put in for power steering!

Seriously where is it? Google can't even tell me!

Thanks,

Ron

It is electric.

I can't hep with your fault though I am afraid, I would be tempted to take it to a specialist to have a look at.

The Power Steering is by dual pinion action, see link.

They can call it what they want, it still isn't as good as a hydraulic system.

It is just cheaper to make and gives a couple of MPG extra in ideal conditions.
