Can anybody tell me where is the power steering fluid reservoir located on a 1999 E430? I could not find it on the manual or is checking the fluid something only for the shop?

It is to the right as you stand in front of the engine. Black container. Also, it should not be low, and should be under warranty, correct?
If you are wondering, drop by the delear and ask a service advisor.

If the car has load leveling then the P/S is the same fluid and should be checked at the hydraulic reservoir.

Thanks for the info.However I saw the reservoir but it appears that you need to remove the engine cover to check the fluid level since it is on top of the reservoir cap.How do you remove this cover?
