2009 S40 Power Steering Fluid Resevoir

Post by jtran777 » Mon Nov 26, 2012 11:25 am

I need some help accessing my Power Steering resevoir. It's hidden way deep behind the front left head light, which is bizarre to me. Any one have experience doing this? It just seems like an illogical place to have the resevoir, but I'm no mechanic.

Thanks in advance,

This question is 4 years old, but never got answered. For the next person looking ...

You need to remove the passenger side headlight first (it takes 30 seconds once you know what to do. Lift the metal stick in the engine compartment that locks the headlight in). Then you can access the power steering reservoir. I still don't know how to tell what the max/min levels are.
