Can anyone help me on the steering fluid spec for a 2005 Kangoo?
[I once owned an Audi which required a fluid available only by the 5 L from the agents at a price that compared with printer cartridge ink!]

thank you. this is what I have used. The pipe was leaking at a crimp between rubber and steel pipes. This terrified me as the pipe goes from the resivoir cunningly hidden behind the front left headlight, (under the battery,) under the engine, behind the engine, over the steering rack, under the turbo, arround to the right of the engine.. WITHOUT A JOIN. It looks like the engine is normally removed to work on it!
I cut the pipe in the only visable 3 inches, once the bumper and mudguard lining and engine guard plate was removed and took it to a hydrolic pipe shop who remade it for me and used a compression connector to join my cut. It is holding good now.

when the fluid gets low, the steering gets lumpy... and heavy...

now to tackle the engine oil leak ... out the turbo!!

Unfortuneately renaults are not made in Japan...
