F20 power steering fluid

How do you top up the fluid. Can't find the reservoir and nothing mentioned in handbook. Is it a closed system. My steering is stiff just before pulling off and just wondered if level is low (and now curious so like to find out how to check it anyway)

The power steering on yours is electric I believe!!

So - apart from part failure - heavy steering when stationary is usually low tyre pressure or chronically bad alignment of the front wheels!
