its on the left side, close to the Fender. You'll find a black jar looking thing, it'll read in fine print "power steering" and u'll see either ATF or CHF11S engraved on it. it'll be too tight to unscrew the top, but it'll eventually come out and depending on what you find, u'll have to get that kind of steering fluid from the dealer. My shuddering disappeared when making turns.
