Fiesta Power Steering fluid - midlifecrisis
My wifes 2002 Fiesta 1.4 Zetecs power steering is slightly low. I checked the handbook and it states to use WSA-M2C-195A. Having been to Halfords/motor suppliers, this grade does not seem to be available. Halfords do a 'Ford spec' fluid with the code ESPM 2C 166H.

Can I use this or any universal Ford fluid with no detrimental effect. The 'genuine' Ford fluid is three times the cost of independent makes.

"The 'genuine' Ford fluid is three times the cost of independent makes."

So it might be....but even that is a lot cheaper than a new pump, hoses and rack if it wrecks it.... Question, where did the fluid go?? Any PAS leak is an MOT failure, so if it has lost some, then you should get it sorted. If no leaks, then it's always been where it is, so I'd just leave well alone. If it's not broke, etc!

Is it illogical? It must be Citroen....

The fluid is approx a fingers width below the minimum mark. Car's just had an mot, so it's not leaking.
