If you have to add fluid all the time then I guess you have a leak. If so then how to you know where from.

The seals in my power steering leak, but there are rubber boots on the end of the rack secured by two clamps. The boots fill up with fluid so I did not know because the fluid does not drip on the ground.

I figured out why I was adding fluid all the time when I removed one of the clamps and fluid came out of the boot.

Porsche is on the 7th generation rack because of leaky seals.

If you cannot see the source of the leak or fluid on the ground then you may have the same problem.

I just stumbled on this and wondering if you have gotten pictures or how to change the power steering reservoir and lines. I'm planning to do the same for my 964.
