RE: Power Steering Reservior leaking thru Cap

I had the same problem with my 84 5000 Turbo.  My first thought was it
was the accumulator.  But as I removed the pressure hose from the
accumulator to the pump I noticed that the fittings had screen filters
built into them and one screen was ripped and the second was clogged
with debris.  So I purchased a complete new hose assembly from the
dealer that included the screened fittings, internal restrictor hose,
and new pressure hose.  I then thoroughly cleaned the reservoir, cleaned
the screen in the reservoir, and installed the complete new hose
assembly.  After that it cured my problem with the reservoir
overflowing.  Since then I have changed the fluid several more times.
Mind you that I'm an Audi newbie and someone else may have a different
solution or your problem may be slightly different.
