  1. Auto Electrical Forum
    Hello, hopefully this is okay to ask here. I've googled but not found anyone else with the exact same problem so not sure what to do. I have a BMW 123d convertible that's automatic, and sometimes when I turn it on I can't turn the wheel at all. It usually takes several goes of turning it off...

    Hi All, This weekend I started my 330ci and noticed a humming when I went to steer. Noticed that she was leaking power steering fluid profusely! Topped up the fluid and took her to the garage and found that this pipe had a crack in it and this was the source of the problems! For the life of my...

    I have recently done an upgrade on my AFS module and also changed the battery since the previous owner had a stupid 49A ACDelco battery installed on the car. (I have registered the battery with tool32 btw) After upgrading the AFS, my steering has gone stiff and its like I dont have power...

    Hey all, finally I've bought long awaited E46 :) The car has 160k miles "on the clock" and full service history, looks and drives great, with one minor (i think) drawback: Power steering, I can't say it doesn't work, works ok, on stand still I can easily turn wheels all the way left and right...

    Hi, I know that this question has been asked about million times and I have read all the answers, but it seems like 50/50 and I'm even more confused. I need to do my PS flush, because my last "mechanic" mixed two fluids, leaving me with some brown, muddy shit. I know I need an ATF, but I...

    Guys here's a quick question, is the steering wheel on the E90 supposed to be quite stiff? I recently bought an immaculate 320i 2005 plate and the steering wheel seems quite stiff. Two of my friends have commented on this issue as well and suggested that I get it checked out. I'm thinking of...

    Hi Guys, I bought my '99 323ci around 1 year ago and the day a got it the power steering failed, so I returned it to the garage and they replaced the pump - job done I thought however now more problems have started. About a month ago I heard a large clunk come from the engine bay and the power...

    Morning All, For the second consecutive Sunday I have encountered a problem with my 325i Saloon. It's always the day I can't do anything about it. Anyway, when pulling out of my driveway on Sunday morning my steering went extremely heavy, like the PAS was no longer working. It reminded me of...

    I've noticed recently my power steering has been quite heavy, although it tends to work well from cold then gets progessively worse. Some investigating revealed the fluid level was too low but topping it up has not solved the problem. I've read that it could be as simple as flushing the ATF...

    Hi I've just returned from a week away to find that the power steering pump has packed up whilst the car has been sat on the drive not doing anything! Luckily I have it covered by Warranty Direct so it's currently at BMW being replaced, but I thought it was strange how it had gone, especially...
