Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Been using the 'vert as my daily driver these last few weeks and this morning I noticed the power steering groaning away when parking. Checked the level this evening and it is pretty low but considering I've never really been troubled with it over the last twelve years I'll go with a tiny weep rather than anything more serious so will just top it up and keep an eye on it.

Trouble is, I know Saab swapped over from mineral based to synthetic at some point so would a 1995 take mineral or synthetic power steering fluid (or indeed does it matter?). Would bog standard fluid from Halfords do, convenient as it is right by the railway station I commute from or am I visiting a specialist supplier for the correct stuff? Handbook says Saab Power Steering Fluid 1890, what would that be in generic terms.
