The steering on my 2001 540iA is acting up. It is somwhat harder to turn to the right, gradually getting easier as the car warms up. There is also a suspicious "whirring" sound--sort of like it wants more fluid. I'd like to do the KISS process and first check the fluid to see if its low---but I can't find the filler cap or the reservoir. Would appreciate advice on: (a) location of filler cap/reservoir, and (b)if low fluid doesn't cure the problem, what is/are the likely cause(s) of the steering problem?
