It's the power steering top-up. Strangely it's not mentioned in the VW handbook, but the Haynes manual helps. Use VW hydraulic fluid type G002 000 or equivalent.

It could be the filler for your headlight washers, ( most passat's have them ).,check to see if it is water that is in there, by rolloing up some paper,and using it as a dip-stick.....if its water, then it will be the light washers

Open hood. Look for semi clear container, Marked Brake Fluid. It usually has a black rubber top. On the side of the container, it will show Fluid level MAX" MIN" get a rag, as brake fluid will remove your Paint" remove cap, slowly fill to Max level. if you spill any. Replace cap, & flush the area with water. this will prevent paint damage. The Type of Fluid will be shown on the cap, its usually Dot 3. And usually cost less than $2 for 12oz. and most times that will last you a LONNNNNNg time. seal tightly & keep away from water, as brake fluid will absorb water & become contaminated

How to know when there is enough antifreeze in radiator

Hello there and welcome to fixya
Checking your radiator fluid:
antifreeze2.pngEvery modern vehicle has a Radiator fluid overflow compartment that is translucent so you can see where the coolant level is without removing the cap. On the side of the compartment there is a full line and an add line. the coolant should be between the two lines. If it's below the add level add 50% water/coolant to the full level.
The green line is the full line, the red line is the add line in the picture.
If you don't have antifreeze but you need fluid, add distilled water,not ordinary tap water, so mineral deposits won't build in the radiator and cause corrosion or blockage. However, you should keep the correct ratio of water and coolant to prevent corrosion and for the highest level of overheat or freeze protection.
To check the fluid IN your radiator
radcap.png you will need to remove the radiator cap. DO NOT remove the radiator cap while the engine is hot. The contents are under pressure and many people have gotten severe burns by removing the radiator cap when it is too hot.
Notice the word "caution" on the cap in the picture.
It goes on to say the contents are under pressure.
IF you have no choice, but to remove the cap when hot, use a towel and remove it slowly to release pressure before you get the cap off.
The fluid in the radiator should be at the top of the radiator.

Make sure you keep 50% water/coolant mixture in the radiator. Some people put more antifreeze in during the winter, but never put more than 70% coolant. It will reduce it's ability to carry heat away from the engine and prevent corrosion.

Power steering fluid levels in 03

Its located next to the windscreen wash bottle on the front right of engine bay, unscrew the cap which is also the dipstick and wipe it clean.Put the cap back into the bottle but dont screw in just dunk it flush with the bottle and lift off and the fluid should be on the high mark on dipstick or if you prefer, just remove the black plastic cover and you will see the container and high mark(min/max).If you want to change the fluid just use a syringe(no needle) and **** all the fluid out(leave a layer on the bottom) and pour in fresh fluid.I did this on 3 weekends so eachtime i sucked out most of the old fluid and the system should only need this every 2 years and last much longer.Keep dirt and dust out and clean around any surfaces before removing the cap etc.
