Re: New Addition to Family Needs Lister Help

	Yes all of the power steering reservoirs have some form of a filter in
them,  on a 4kq you have to unscrew the large top on the reservoir and
there is a doughnut shaped filter inside,  the type 44 chassis cars have a
similar arrangement,  where as 80/90 or 92-98 large chassis cars have a
tubular filter that fits in through the top similar to what is in the brake
fluid reservoir.  At the dealer any time I do a major service or have to
top up the goo 2000 I check and clean this filter,  usually you will find
it coated in a fine black silt, (don't know what it is),  if I know Audi's
it's probably little pieces of seal and o-ring that will eventually leak!!
