'97 IS COUPE - STEERING STIFF

1997 BMW 318

Hi, the steering on the car is getting increasingly stiff. There is 120k miles on the clock. I have a haines manual only, and the model shown is slightly different to mine, its more relevant to a Z3. I cant find the power steering resevoir. Does anyone know where I can locate it, or if there are other possible solutions to the problem? Thanks

The power steering reservoir is a cylindrical plastic
container located on the left side of the engine bay.
It has a black plastic screw on top.
Use DEXRON type ATF
