View Full Version : Help with power steering cap

Ok, I remember reading this before on bimmer.org and now I see it on mine. It was prob there before, but just seen it. I seen where a few people had power steering fluid all over the cap like it was slowly coming out. What was the fix to this, something with the lid or what????? :confused:

You need a new o-ring seal for the cap. I think it's the same size as the oil filter, put on the new o-ring and torque the cap tight.

thanks, is that easy to do or is this something I need to take in for service? I wonder if they know about this if or when I go?
