For an AT, here are most of the main steps: You can do it yourself but will need to have a few tools, and will need to raise the car "evenly", so both front and back are raise…d. *Critical tools to have: Torque wrench, Metric socket set, Allen wrench (strongly suggest socket based so you can torque it correctly later), oil drain container, 2 jacks (2ton or more), 4 ramps and (not to lift, but just for support.. i just slid them underneath after jacking the car evenly from both sides (get a friend to help), 4 jack stands,for additional SAFETY!!! Before doing anything else, download the 311 or 409 version of this software for older vw's, or the newer version for new ones:(probably torrent, etc) http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/download/ You will basically need to buy a compatible cable, plug into your diagnostic port on your car (under the steering wheel), then to the serial port on your PC (any old PC will do), and use the software. Before starting as well, run the software, then go to ross-tech.com to get the code for the software so you can read the temperature on the tranny so you can get an idea of what your going to be doing.

\n. \n Adding Power Steering Fluid \n. \nIf your car is equiped with power steering, the reservior is located in the engine bay on the drivers side. It is attached to th…e engine where the belts run.
Answer . \nthe resivior is on the passenger side of the motor, its white, and you add it at the same place you check it.
YouTube has a number of video tutorials ~ see related link below .
Answer . Open hood, look at the rear right of the engine compartment. You'll see a coolant tank. Near the tank you'll see the brake master cylinder with the plastic reservo…ir attached directly on top.
open the power-steering reservoir cap. generally it says "power-steering fluid" ... first open up the hood... and make sure you have the right type of fluid.
In a 2.0 the power steering reservoir is in the very front to the right it should be kinda small w/ a indent in the top and its got a little picture of a steering wheel and a …drop of fluid over it
While parked on a level surface, and th engine is cold , locate thepower-steering reservoir. The reservoir is connected to the powersteering pump and is clearly labeled. Add a…pproved fluid to justbelow the low-level mark.
The same place you check the level.
in the reservoir on the left side of the engine bay between the coolant tank and the washer fluid tank - it is a black tank with an yellow or orange top - use a large flat hea…d screwdriver and unscrew the top. Add Pentosin CHF 11S Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid or equivalent - I heard that Valvoline synthetic power steering fluid will work.
In VW Jetta
A 1991 VW Jetta's power steering reservoir is located towards thefront of the engine bay. The unit can be seen placed on top of thepower steering pump.
The newer VW's have a electro mechanic steering system so there is no power steering reservoir typically found in hydraulic steering systems.
Underneath the drivers seat
Only if VW recommends it. Use exactly what VW recommends.
Yes, it is safe, but more difficult to handle. Get it fixed as soon as possible.
