Pardon me for not making any assumptions.

What does the repair kit do?

Is it a repair kit for the SZL (Steering Column Switch Sensor) or the LWS (Steering Angle Sensor)?

Thanks for the reminder. The fluid is definitely right at full (not over, not under). And the fluid added is the correct hydraulic fluid CHF11S.
