    Checking Power Steering Fluid level!! Help needed asap!

    Hey all. Probs a silly question but to check the level, do you have to screw it all the way in, then out and check it, or do you screw it out, wipe it and just dip it in the top?

    If so, screwing in looks like its over full and just dipping it in looks like it needs topping up!! lol.

    The top looks like it needs a big arse flat blade screw driver to undo it

    Cheers guys!! My steering feels heavy thats all and i was hoping the fluid was low so itd be a case of topping it up. Would it have adverse effects if it was too full?
