Mein Auto: 2001 740il
Power steering pump replacement

Hi
This is my first posting yes I am a newbie.
What I was hoping is to get some input on replacing my power steering pump. I have a 2001 740il and was told by a repair shop that deals with German cars only. That it was going out. They wanted $550.00 for the part and about $400.00 for the labor. That a bit much for a pump I thought so went to local auto parts store and got one for $116.00 plus $90.00 core. The repair shop list ATF fluid for the pump so I bought some synthetic ATF. Is there anything I need to know going into this?? Thanks in advance for any help. Steve

Not to bad of a job, synth ATF (mobile one) is what I use, take off belt, drop three bolts, remove hoses( these nuts are bad, big air wrench for one of mine, replace all hoses and nuts at same time as they are most are leaking

when you say you went to a local parts store, was the part you got for BMW, or any other make? We have the same problem, steering pump has a leak for our 2001 740iL.Thanks, I'm in Toronto, Canada.

All the links are for a 2001 740I....

Oreilly Auto and parts geek have them remanufactured for about $130+- it shouldnt cost you more than about $300.00 for the install including fluid. I would have all the hoses changed out though while everything is down. I would order them from the web for the best price...

You will need to replace the canister too... These are parts that can be purchased non-OEM and you will be fine...

I just had this done for the price I just mentioned plus parts...

Be sure to purchase the correct pump. There are two kinds...

The fluid is is either ATM or Pentosin and it depends on what system you have. This goes along with the two kinds of power steering pumps. You need to know which one you have.
