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 type of oil to used for power steering

Your owners manual is the best choice there, to check
for the correct P/S Fluid

Now Hondas have special fluid for trans & special fluids
for power steering

They are one of a few the you can not try something generic
or something that says for honda

All power steering fluids are vehicle specific & I would never
buy or use any auto parts store brands, regardless of the label

For the Trans you pretty much have to go to the dealer for fluid
& having once owned a trans repair shop,you should add Lubegard
& no other brand

To your question--The Power Steering --- I really do not know the
answer, but I do know that at the auto parts store they have Lubegard Power Steering Additive in a yellow bottle with some purple on it, just for Honda

I would suggest you flush the system every 3 years,on all your vehicles,& to be safe, get the power steering fluid at the dealer,one quart is enough & add the Lubegard 6 or 10 oz

Power steering fluid leaking and turning is hard need to know how to change pump and hose need to know how to change it myself

First check the hoses located at the back of the pump. They are the most likely culprit.
If the fluid is leaking from the hose, purchase a replacement from a local dealer or repuitable auto parts supply.

If it is not the hose and the pump needs to be replaced, first I would suggest buying a Chilton manual either on-line or from an auto parts store and follow the detailed proceedure in replacing the pump.

This should require open end wrenches and take an hour or so.

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.
