There us usually a fill cap on top of the power steering pump. Check your owners manual to locate the power steering pump. Beacause they're probably labeled in German under the hood. I believe its labeled "Linkelfumf" or something similar to that. It should look like a little cylinder with a cap on it and a black screw-knob on the top. Twist off the black knob and the top should come off so you can fill it. Just make sure to look in your owners manual first to find it. It should be located in the front of the engine. Hope this helped! Open the hood and look down between the upper radiator hose and the duct from the air cleaner. You will see something that looks like a small pot with a black knob on top. With the engine off unscrew the black knob and remove, then remove the cover, this is the power steering sump. When replacing the cover you will need to push down a bit as it is spring loaded.

Noise may be heard in a power steering line when the power steering fluid is low. Low power steering fluid may occur due to a leaking power steering pump in most cases. If the pump is not leaking, then the fluid needs to be added.

Lift the hoods, find the lid to the power steering reservoir and remove the lid. Attached to the lid is the dipstick to the power steering fluid, read the level and decide if more needs to be added.

Transmission fluid should not be used in place of power steering fluid. Power steering fluid is less compressible so that it can transfer power to different systems. Transmission fluid is meant for lubrication and has higher dimulsibility than power steering fluid.

Power steering fluid is basically clear. Some cars use transmission fluid in the power steering which is dark red. You can use power steering fluid in cars that use transmission fluid but not the reverse. The cap of the reservoir should say power steering fluid only.

Power steering fluid helps your steering wheel turn easily. If you have dirty power steering fluid, it may be hard to turn your steering wheel while driving.
