Video Description

The video above shows you the steps needed to check the power steering fluid level in your 2012 Volkswagen Passat. Checking the power steering fluid level in your Passat is relatively easy and should be done once a month or if you are experienced difficulty turning the wheel or steering your Passat. Your Passat should be parked on a level surface and your 2.5 liter engine should be cold to the touch.

If the power steering fluid level in your Passat 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.
