    Anyone know a good source for Aston parts.

    I just need a Power steering reservoir cap... its a left handed thread cap with dip stick, and you can only buy the whole reservoir from Aston...

    any breakers?

    No. its like a brake fluid style "female" cap in black, with dip stick attached inside, and it's fitted on the RHS of engine bay (RHD car)

    Can't believe it has LH thread. How stupid is that?

    Any other ideas.....

    crashed DB7 vantage breaking anywhere???

    That sounds like exactly the same style cap. It fits over the threads and attached to the center of the cap on the inside is a black plastic measuring stick half the length or 1/3 the length of a popsickle stick. Looking into the p/s resevoir looks like a pool of dark fluid.

    You positive its not the same cap? Its definitely the same style.

    Positive.

    Your pics show a ZF reservoir bottle (same as lots of cars), which has a male threaded cap... ie the cap has external threads when you look at it.

    I need the type that has internal threads (like a brake fluid cap)...

    It has only about 3 turns of thread, and has an arrow and "OPEN" on top.. and the arrow points clockwise to open.

    Thanks for trying though... any other ideas....

    This is the only photo I have found on the net. You can see it's not a ZF bottle.
