    Loosing steering fluid?

    My b7 a4 has started loosing power steering fluid, where best place to start checking?

    my car is "decked" with the bumper more less on the ground lol, is there any pipes close to the ground which I could of damaged? Or any near the wheels as I have 19s on which could rub against them?
    Had to top it up twice within 400 miles if that helps

    thanks for any info guys

    Power steering pump might need replacing, mine went on my 2.0TFSI Q. I had vibrations in the steering and kept loosing fluid.

    Get the car on a set of ramps, remove the under tray and physically look. There's no point in getting paranoid and guessing, you need to look for the leak physically then go from there.
