I Put Water in My Power Steering Fluid

Reader Question What should we do if we accidentally put water into the power steering fluid container by mistake instead of the window washer container on a Renault Clio.

Hello there

You will probably be ok, if you can get a turkey baster from your kitchen and suction out some of the power steering fluid then refill with new steering fluid you should be fine.

I would recheck the power steering fluid in a week or so and make sure there is no foam building up inside the reservoir and that the power steering fluid has not changed colors. The system only holds a small amount, so I can not imagine you put in that much washer fluid..correct?
