Hello All
I'm new to this forum today but wanted to ask members a question for help:
I have a 2012 525d m sport bought recently low mileage 50k and everything runs nicely on the car but the steering is making a slight whining sound when I turn wheels to the left only. Not noticeable when driving until you are on a car park or driveway pulling up. Its not a knocking sound but wondered if anyone else has heard anything similar on their f10's.
Thanks for the help.
Jay

This is commonly caused by air in the power steering system. As a first pass you can try draining and re-filling the power steering fluid. If that doesn't help you could be looking at replacing the pump.

If you just take the top off the bottle that holds the fluid and look to see if its frothy or got bubbles in it you should be able to tell quite quickly.

Took it into halfords last Saturday to have it checked over but unknown to me they said the steering is electronic and as such no pump or fluid used. They could not pick up the sound themselves but I can still hear it......
