A little help fellas?? PS reservoir removal.
 
I hear a pop in my engine and notice fluid coming out with pressure. seems like my reservoir cracked and I want to inspected before I go to Autozone. Would I have to remove the steering pump or can I take the reservoir off without removing the pump?
Is there a specific PS fluid I need?
Thanks
