    Help us out with what model car you have here memmo, then I can move the thread to the correct forum, welcome to the forum by the way. If it's your power steering fluid, then the little fluid bottle will be low, and most likely going to need a new or refurbed steering rack to fix.

    Yep, rack is gubbed, needs replacing or rebuilding as the seals are non end user replaceable

    It looks A3 ish so it's a subframe drop to replace sadly
