I must point out I am a complete dim whit when it comes to cars (well most things really) I have a 2003 Vauxhall Astra Bertone (G) which was serviced and MOT'd at the end of April. I didn't drive it for a few weeks after but now have noticed that when I am at slow speeds, ie turning into a street etc the steering has got extremely heavy and it's hard to turn the wheel. My first thought was the tyre pressures so I checked them and they were all higher than the owners manual suggested so I let some air out and brought them in line with what the manual stated hoping, as dim whits do, that this may be the problem. It wasn't the steering is still really heavy at low speeds. The next thing I have thought about is the steering fluid, here is my problem, I can't find the reservoir for the steering fluid, and to be honest if low I wouldn't know what to put in it if/when I find it. Does anyone know where I could find it and do I just top it up if it's low or would it need the old stuff drained. I would prefer not to take it to the garage if it's something that's simple to do. I have mobility issues so getting under the car is not really an option.
