Video Description

The video above shows you the steps needed to check the power steering fluid level in your 2005 Volkswagen Beetle. Checking the power steering fluid level in your Beetle is relatively easy and should be done once a month or if you are experienced difficulty turning the wheel or steering your Beetle. Your Beetle should be parked on a level surface and your 1.8 liter engine should be cold to the touch.

If the power steering fluid level in your Beetle is low, fill it up to the maximum line with power steering fluid and check it again in a week to determine if you have a leak.
