i've bought some dexron III is that the right fluid before i put it in and cause the seals to f**k up. ?????

Cant find much on net.

The chamber was pretty much empty, i noticed a whining noise from engine bay when turning wheels on stand still, i think its air in the power steering pump or summit. Chkd oil and it was low... not much at all.

It's VAG mineral oil, about £8 for 1litre from VW/Seat/Skoda dealer
or £16 from Audi dealer

Also you need to check the fluid level when its warm with the wheels straight. If you are checking it on a cold engine and a cold day it will be normal for the level to be slightly under minimum.
