Right next to the battery is the power steering bottle, there is a green cap, that has a slot in it, use a flat screw driver, or a coin will also work, unscrew the cap, and on the cap is a small dipstick. If it is low, I would not recommend using generic power steering fluid, if possible use the VW fluid. This is a mineral oil fluid and using generic can cause issues with the fluid and seals.
