Exclamation 2004 V6 Touareg Power Steering Reservoir Location

Hello,

(2004 V6) Wife recently experienced loud ticking and vibration almost like a flat tire at very slow speeds when turning the steering wheel. I checked over the tires and lug nuts and all were in place and nothing was rubbing when the steering wheel was turned. So I want to check the power steering fluid level to see if its low or if its foaming or has bubbles.

Where is the location for this reservoir? I don't have my users manual handy and would like to see a picture of the location so I can check the fluid. Also does anyone know what fluid to use and if Pep Boys/Autozone would carry it? Or is it proprietary to the VW dealer?

Ok it's labeled "hydraulic fluid" but it is that same color as well. What's an R5?
