Evening,

My power steering on my 11 plate C3 Pic is making a whirring noise when I move the wheel, it's not loud and it's only at high speed I think. I'm trying to rule things out and the first thing I wanted to check was the steering fluid levels but for the life of me I can't find the tank. Where have Citroën hidden the damn steering fluid tank?

Yes it is electric and all self contained sealed system. However many have had problems with the system and Citroen are aware so go see a dealership.

Is it belt driven or anything that I can check myself before taking it to the dealers?
