. Is there any residue? Can you peek under the dash and see where the lines go?

Could be windshield washer reservoir also. Is there any residue? Can you peek under the dash and see where the lines go?




The screen wash had a separate top up just inside the driver's door. Thanks anyway.

That's a location I'd expect to find the radiator, where do you top it off?



The radiator is topped up through an flap on the outside just behind the cab. Thanks for the reply, though.

Hi,

Hope someone can help me out. I've just bought a 1988 MAN 8.136 horsebox. In the centre top of the dashboard, I've found a pop-out flap with a mystery fluid reservoir hidden underneath.

I think it might be the power steering reservoir, but could do with some confirmation before I top it up!

Anyone got any knowledge of this truck?
