    When should the power steering fluid be changed? I have a 2004 Passat 1.8T 4MOTION and just hit 100K miles. Is there an interval to follow? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I recently bought a 2001 B5 V6 4Motion Wagon. This is my first water-cooled Volkswagen. After a few days, I noticed a whining noise when turning. This happens when moving the steering wheel in either direction. I can also feel a minimal amount of vibration on the steering wheel itself...
