Hi, finally on an inspection.

Noticed this small bottle was low, what is it and what do I put in it? (attached)
Need to find out where the excess has gone too Sad

On another note, my power steering has gone mad. It squeals like a pig when turning left or right at low revs and still at higher revs but not as much. Ideas?

Is it a black or clear bottle? Black, located on side of drivers side strut = power sterring... Clear located on bulk head = brake or clutch master cylenders.

But we could do with some more info about the bottle realy before you go & put the wrong stuff in.

Sqweaky power stearing will be just your belt needs adjusting/tightening

check power steering fluid !!
mine was making the same noises and it turned out it was nearly empty Rolling Eyes 
quick trip to Halfolds - job sorted
as Gaz said - black bottle - will be by bulk head - drivers side - when you take lid off it should have a mini dip stick type thing

Sorry, thought I'd attached a picture.
Re-done via image shack.

The small clear one on bulkhead, doesn't have any markings so it could need baby oil for all I know. The one closer to the strut has DOT 3 on the top and bigger - That one is fine.



What go's in this? Just narrowed the noise down to that rear belt, seems like water dripping onto it making it slip

That would be your clutch fluid  pot mate if you look underneath you should be able to see the pipe going off
