Orange circled thing is the power steering reservoir.

If it's on your C5 (X7) then it should be topped up with Total Fluide DA or Total LDS (they're both the same thing). It should NOT be topped up with a generic power steering fluid or Citroen LHM fluid.

Have a quick read of this thread: viewtopic.php?p=593631

Citroen used to say Glysantin G33 was the right coolant, but that's been discontinued. G30 is readily available from various manufacturers (Comma being one), and G30 is a suitable replacement. If your garage is doing a complete drain / flush / replacement, then (realistically) any good quality suitable OAT coolant will do provided it's used to the right spec, but it's best to check the coolant manufacturer's guides beforehand just to be sure.

Your fuse box next the battery is missing its cover. Get one asap otherwise your car will literally go pop as water seeps in and starts to cause a considerable amount of havoc!
