adding steering fluid to 260E ??

Where in the the 260E engine compartment is the cap to open and add steering fluids? I am looking at it just moments ago and can't seem to identify it. I think I only see the windshield washer and coolant reservoir on the passenger side and brake fluid on driver side next to the dash. Of course the two red sticks for oil & transmissions fluid. Don't see anything else. Any idea?
Engine is 2.6L 103

By the way, what kind of steering fluid is approved for putting in the 260E/300E system? Can I use the Prestone steering fluids with the leak repairing additives? I recall someone said before that you are suppose to put in ATF (automatic transmisison fluid) into the steering system ? Is this true or i just heard crazy rumours?

open hood ....look to the right and in back of the radiator....round silvery container.... that's power steering..

you probably need to take a look at the manual.... i use valvoline syn fluid...

...after flushing with cheaper stuff.. replace the 4 dollar filter at the bottom of the container.... probably smells like burnt fluid if you have never changed it.
