Hello,

There should be a black bottle with a green cap somewhere under the hood. The green
cap should have an image of a steering wheel on it as well.

The bottle should look similar to the one in this image:

We don't have the Sharan in Canada, but this should be a VW standardized bottle.

Don't accept if you did not find this information helpful, if you do accept but have further
questions, feel free to continue posting to this topic.

I will see if I can find a Sharan picture on the web.
