When I did a fluid change on my S4, I found out that the hydraulic system
really pumps a LOT of fluid quickly through that reservoir. I assume the 200
is the same. So, maybe the low fluid level allows some air to get into the
system? Just a guess...

the symptoms described above are gone. Totally smooth steering, no
groaning/moaning sounds (from the car guys, from the car) and no more hard
steering. I am surprised because I would assume that the system should
normally at any fluid level between min & max. It's surprising that 2 to 3
of fluid in the reservoir would make such a profound difference in
I guess the message here is to keep that reservoir filled to the Max. line
The one question this brings up: is this whole thing an indicator of
serious failure in the near future? Any BTDT on this?
