I'm wondering if I'm missing something here. I need to top off the steering fluid on my 2012 but I can't seem to get the cap off (I'll be using pentosin 11s). It moves about 1/4 turn from side to side but it doesn't seem to unscrew. I've tried pushing down on it while turning, but nada. Also checked the owners manual, but I didn't find anything. I've tried using both hands and even feel the mounting bracket flexing so, I've put some force into it.

Newb here so, before I take a pair of pliers to the cap with a rag to try to unscrew it, I wanted input from the forum.

Thanks!

It only requires a quarter turn to tighten or remove. I uploaded a video from my 2012 FFRR for your reference.

I'm very glad I asked :doh: I was totally having a newb moment. I was expecting the cap to turn all the way until unscrewed. I'm sure I would have broken something.

Thanks Les Paul.

This is one of the few things I’ve had to tackle on the RR since purchasing it a year and a half ago! Glad it helped!

CaifanSC, use Pentosin CHF 202, it is better suited for our car. I found that the easiest way to flash the system is by using vacuum pump. I did a post with pictures in this treed.

I had actually stumbled upon your post in my reading. Great post Buba. I've seen a couple people use CHF 202. I'll have to read a bit more on the differences (if you have preferred reading material, feel free to share!). I was hoping to use CHF11s for pure convenience, as that's what I already use on my bimmers and audis.

I think for the time being, I'll play it safe and just pop over to my local LR dealer and get the steering fluid from them, just to top off. I'll save the pentosin switch for when I do a full flush.
