    Does he know how to pull the metal braided power steering line out of the hole it goes into and it pops back out over by the passenger driver door or wheel is there a trick to pulling it out or do you have to cut the end off and then replace the end or whatever you have to do for the fitting to...
  2. 6 Series
    Hi Guys My 645 (pre LCI) has had some oil misting on the top of the power steering reservoir for a while now and I want to fix it. The car has dynamic drive and active steering. Is there an easy fix for the oil misting on the top? I have seen posts suggesting its the o ring in the screw top...

    There are no noises, no leaking, it's just completely out turning to the right. It turns when lifted, so it does not seem to be mechanical. It's been months and I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated!
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So today I wanted to go out for a drive and when I left I realized my power steering wasn’t working. I drove back home and I was trying some stuff like turning the wheel from lock to lock and I tried turning the car on and off but nothing seemed to work. When I turned the wheel from lock to lock...

    This topic came up a couple years ago with no resolution. (See thread from user “dgeldart”) Now it is my turn. Catastrophic loss of fluid at the connector. Plastic shrouds jammed and even with two people in a tight space on a lift, the shroud could move a little, but the connector frozen in...
  6. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I was told today by a repair shop that the repair shop that performed my front end work installed the Drag Link backwards, causing it to rub against the frame and makes my steering tight. Is this possible? Is the center link still good? Could this be the reason why I need a 4 wheel alignment...

    I can’t seem to find out what is wrong with my power steering system at this point, I’ve replaced the reservoir, both hoses connecting to the steering rack, and the pump twice. After replacing these parts I go to fill it and bleed it by turning the wheel and nothing … the fluid level doesn’t...

    Hey Gents, Was thinking of removing and replacing my PS fluid using the turkey baster method. Any suggestions on what type of ATF fluid I should use? I was debating in which to use: Castrol Multi-Vehicle (Non-Syn) or the Castrol Transmax ATF4 (Full Synthetic). What do you guys use? Thanks...
  9. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello guys. I have last week bought a BMW F10 520D 2.0L (2014). I have a slight issue with the steering. When driving, the steering turns more times to the left, by itself (sometimes to the right also), by about 35° - 40°. It feels as if its turning it self, rather than drifting. After a couple...

    So i have a 2004 E46 325ci and it has a brand new power steering pump about 1000 miles ago. Today when i started the car the steering wheel was easy to turn one way and then the other way felt like no power steering at all. and when i shut the car off the steering wheel turned a bit. I have no...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hoping someone can help me figure this out! I am stumped. My E92 started making a whining noise a few months ago, and I diagnosed the noise as coming from the power steering pump—the noise would get louder when I turned the wheel in either direction. This was with a new reservoir I installed...
  12. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)

  13. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I drive a 1996 328i and it has a ticking/knocking noise coming from the engine bay. Does anyone know what this could be? Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hL0i8hgJJU What I know: - Coming from the driver side. Appears to be lower - I notice the most vibration from the noise when I have...
  14. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I experienced a power steering failure/leak - was advised at local BMW service center to replace the p/s pump and return line to reservoir. Upon completion, the service adviser is stating that there is still fluid "shooting up from reservoir". The new recommendation is to replace all Active...
  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My new to me 2006 330ci cuts out momentarily when turning. I had seen somewhere on the web that this is due to a faulty power steering sensor. Can any other members verify this and possibly point me to info on how to replace it.
  16. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I've got a 2001 740IL that I'm replacing the power steering pump. After looking at it, it looks like I need to remove the transmission cooler lines as they look to be in the way of my power steering lines. Does anyone know if the cooler lines need to come off? If so, they look like they're...

    Hi, Recently, I started hearing a noise from my power steering pump, and before I had time to address it, I lost power steering one day. I decided to change power steering pump, hoses, and the reservoir using these two threads as guidance: Hoses, reservoir, and flushing procedure...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey Guys Not sure how to describe the issue. Sometimes when turning, the car will not feel as gripped to the surface. At slow speeds it can feel hard to turn the steering wheel at times. At faster speeds it feels loose. If I turn quickly, it feels as if the front wheels are gliding a little...
  19. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2005 545i. I was driving the other day and everything was fine. I had just bought this car used with 137k miles. All of a sudden I get a low break fluid warning message in iDrive. It says breaking efficiency was reduced and I could tell from the stopping that it was but it was nothing...
