I cannot see the image you have attached. When I remove the reservoir for power steering and the cover plate there is some type of mechanism in front of the bulb. What do i do with it?
Audi Mechanic: marcpod, Own collision repair advice replied 7 years ago

I will send the picture for you its a cap that needs to be taken off.
