Hi

Yesterday my zed starting making horrible noises when turning left and right at junctions, when I got it home I noticed fluid leaking from under the car and I jacked it up to take a look , found the metal pipe on the power steering has corroded with rust and is leaking. I have checked the other hoses and connections and they are all OK, I rubbed the metal pipe a little and it started leaking even more, so its defiantly the metal pipe. Ive searched the forums, tried Ebay, Google search and had a look at the online parts catalog, but cant find this pipe anywhere as a last resort I'll head to a Dealer.

Anyone know where I can get a hold of one of these pipes or is it part of the rack it's self?

Cheers

I think you will find its part of the rack which a bmw part will cost a packet i should think unless you can get a reconditioned part
