    Hi all. I have a 2013 bmw 1 series 116d efficientdynamics with 57700 miles. Took it for an MOT, they said brake pads need to be changed. Next day they call me and say the steering rack is broken and it will cost £3000 to replace. There's no way I can afford this, and I was planning on trading it...

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to connect the steering coupler (from the front subframe of a 97 M3) to my steering column (on a 92 328i). My problem: I can't get the column (sorry if using the wrong terminology here) to fit into the coupler (the column is too big). I have tried some tips from online...

    I'm not the brightest when it comes to fixing cars and I need some help. I have an E36 316i and I need to put a new steering rack into it. Does it matter if I buy one that is power steering or not and do I need to replace something else when I install a new one?

    What's up guys? I know this subject has been beat to death, and I've done a lot of searching on this forum and all over the internet, and I have not found a solution to my specific problem. So I'll just get into it. About a year ago, my high pressure hose broke. The end that hooked into the...

  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So for the last few months I've been experiencing clicking and popping sounds when turning as well as steering malfunction error messages. After a brief diagnoses it was determined that the steering rack was at fault. Unfortunately this is an active steering rack so it's impossible to rebuild...
