Volkswagon Beetle Power Steering leak?

Asked by Sep 08, 2017 at 11:51 AM about the 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1979 VW Super Beetle.  I've noticed some leaking under the steering
onto the floorboard.  It is clearish pink.  Is this power steering fluid?  Seems to
be coming from a small plastic hose under steering wheel on the left towards
the driver door.

1 Answer


That sound like brake fluid. Beetles did not have power steering.
