Smile What Power steering fluid?

I've searched the past threads and not found a definate answer apart from pay a lot to the man in the Sabb parts dept at your local dealer ( which may not even stock it anymore). I've had some issues for a while where some days it's lovely and smooth ( like the day it went for it's MOT ) but a day later it was nearly seized . I flushed it through with some GM-6417M I bought in Halfords and it seems a lot better but I'd like to make sure it's the best stuff for the job -at a reasonable price that is.

......are you asking what fluid to put in the car, where to get it? Or what parts to replace. Your post is a bit vague to say the least! :-P

I don't really think these steering racks are snobby at all. The bentley says that GM power steering fluid is the stuff, I haven't had any problems...
