It should be on the bottom of the rack, not easy to get to without jacking up the car. It is casted into the metal

The abs light keeps coming on every couple of mins with a high pitched beep . but everything seem's to drive ok ..... 98 passat turbo ..

I have a Volkswagen Passat 1998 1.8 T ver since buying the car i have put alot of money towards repair.

First of lot was the head gaskets i soon found this out when whilst driving at a moderate speed and the car all of a sudden pushed forward i loked under the hood of the car and my water was mixed with the oil, the soon over heated and the oi pump blew which i then had replaced.

Afew months later my power steering started to leak and all i could hear was a loud screechin sound evrytime i turned the wheel, i went to go get it checked out and my rack and pinion was not in the best of condition, I removed the rack and pinion with the help of my father, this was not an easy job as we did it using a jack and man power.

Now only a week ago my car was then again on the road the engine all of a sudden started to shake heavily and evrytime i went to accelerate the car would lag and make a loud sound like a diesel tractor (my car is a petrol car) i got it checked out.

To my suprise my transmission mounts were shredded and were not safe so i had that repaird at a price, i thought that this would stop the shaking of the car but the mechanic soon found out taht it didnt so back to the drawing board agian and to my suprise it is the cylinder heads that has the problem i am not to sure whether its the engin coil or the spark plugs or if it could be the actual piston head itself

How to change power steering fluid?

You may want to take it to a repair shop and have them do a power steering flush, its so much easier and they will be able to flush out the rack assemblt as well.

Makes a noise (moaning-like)when turning the steering wheel but goes away after car has been driven for a while.

power steering fluid is low. check and top it up or you risk damaging the pump.

after topping up to the full mark, turn the steering lock-to-lock several times to purge any air from the system then refit the lid. Take care not to get any dirt into the open pump and only use the correct steering fluid for your car or you may find the seals rot and leak, a steering rack for your car is over £600 plus a LOT of labour believe me.
