It'* differnet on NA vs. SC.

The resivoir is on the passenger side, next to the firewall. It'* down about 12" from the top of the motor. Look down there, you'll see the fill cap.

Ah did a search on the site and eventually found a link to it! Found it. What a stupid place for it. Series 1 had it on top near the throtle body...much better design! Oh well she was low so I topped her up. Now on to fixing the leak! thanks everyone.
