I would use the factory Power steering fluid.  However as long as the fluid is Hydrolic oil G 002 000 you will be fine.  Just take this referance number in and have your local parts store see if they can come up with comprable fluid to the VW power steering fluid

It should be under the driver's side of the dash around the steering column. They can take it to most any auto parts store and get the codes read for free.

What is the small black plastic oil container with the green cap immediately to the left of the battery on a 2004 VW beetle? I was cleaning my engine and accidentally broke off the barbed fitting and hose...

That is the power steering fluid reservoir. Be sure to replace any fluid lost with the correct type.

Volkswagen uses a specific type of fluid. Using the wrong one will result in damage to the power steering pump and/or rack and pinion.

Consult your owners manual or the Volks dealer to be sure you are getting the right fluid.

Good luck.
