Unhappy Vw golf 6 power steering system problem

Hi everyone,

I noticed the steering wheel started to resist at my actions ( turning right / turning left), I thought may be the servo liquid but I really cannot find the recipient for servo direction and here is where I am very alarmed because the car has been involved in an accident in the right corner of the car and I am wondering, the guy who repaired the car might not be installed the recipient and the car was running all this time (4 months) only with the liquid which remained in the system, is this possible ?

Under the hood, my car looks similar with the car in the picture, please tell me what are these 2 things marked in red circles.

My car was fabricated in 2009, could it have electric steering system ?

Also I should specify that the battery was so empty because the car stayed in the garage for more then a month in cold whether but now seems to be ok.

Please help me with this problem, thank you !

Two things to look for. Look at front of engine, at your V-Belts. Do you see a Hydraulic Power Steering Pump, with Reservoir? If so, then you have Hydraulic, no Electric Steering. If no Power Steering Pump (you'll be able to tell, you'll only have alternator and water pump pulley) Another way, get under car, look at Steering Rack. Any hydraulic lines? Or wires? If you see wires at Steering Rack, then you have Electric Steering. Since all of my electric power steering VW's have all been under bumper-to-bumper warranty, I haven't even had my VW CC up on car ramps to look at any of this. But, hope this helps
