SOURCE: power steering fluid or ATF

Yes There Is ONLY ONE PLACE for Power Steering Fluid.

ZF Gemmer Steering

The ZF Gemmer steering is permanently filled with oil. There is no drain plug.

ZF Rack and Pinion Steering Without Power Assist

The ZF rack and pinion steering is lubricated for its service life and therefore does not require servicing.
In case of repair, steering components on E21 vehicles are to be lubricated with a sodium-based grease, with a temperature range of -30°C to +75°C .
Calypsol D 4024 BMW Part No.32 11 1 116 929

Ball and Nut or Rack and Pinion Power Steering

Only reputable brand Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) of Dexron® III formulation may be used for the power steering and power steering pump.
In case of brief hydraulic noise after starting at low outside temperatures, we recommend replacing the red ATF with green CHF or LHM oil (see below).

ZF Ball and Nut Power Steering with H31 System

The approved oils for BMW models with power steering and the H31 brake booster system are identical with those oils approved for power steering without the H31 system except for the following:

E32 models with self-leveling rear suspension and mutual oil supply tank in the engine compartment.
Countries with very low outside temperatures (e.g. Canada) had their power steering systems filled at the factory with Pentosin CHF 7.1 since 9/87 through 9/91. This is also to be used on vehicles built before 9/87.

Since 9/91, vehicles now use Pentosin CHF 11S instead of CHF 7.1.

Pentosin CHF 7.1 BMW Part No.81 22 1 468 879
Pentosin CHF 11S BMW Part No.82 11 1 468 041

These cars are marked with a pertinent label located close to the oil tank.

LHM oils (green color) of the following manufacturers may also be used instead of Pentosin (CHF 7.1):
Shell LHM
Castrol LHM
Exxon LHM

The mixing of CHF, LHM oils and ATF is not permitted.

Pentosin CHF 4548 was used on vehicles built before 9/87 but is no longer available. However, mixing of Pentosin CHF 7.1 with residual quantities of Pentosin CHF 4548 are permiffed in these earlier vehicles. Mixing of these two oils is not permitted for E32/E38 vehicles.

The hydraulic system for power steering and power-assisted brakes must be drained as completely as possible when changing from one type of oil to the other.
All oil supply reservoirs are marked with the type of oil being used - ATF or CHF.

SOURCE: I need to change the power steering fluid in my BMW X5

Can you tell me why you need to change the power steering fluid? I've never heard of doing this and the maintenance schedule in the data base that I use doesn't call for changing it.

2003 bmw x5 climate control doesn't have power: what would cause this?


No power to something, no matter what, normally means a blown fuse. Check the fuse to it. The fuse panel cover has the diagram on the under side of it or would be in the operator/repair manual.

What type of power steering fluid and the capicity does bmw 545i 2004


Most BMWs have a dip stick in the reservoir cap to measure the fluid level of the power steering fluid. We use Agip power steering fluid. There are generally just two types, standard Dextrn/ATF and Power steering fluid. Unless the cap or manual states otherwise, then just put power steering fluid in it.

Where do I put power steering fluid in a 2005 bmw x5


Hello Sir. Usually it would say in the owners Hand book you got with car? explaining all the controls functions of the car or 4x4? alternatively if you look under bonnet there only be four filling reservoirs: engine coolant water, washer bottle, brake Fluid,power steering. usually the engine coolant will be a largish cap about 2-3 ins either blue or black its NOT this one. The brake fluid Will be at the back of engine bay and so NOT his one. Washer bottle again will be a cap blue in color its NOT this one. the one you want should be near front of car /engine and should have a steering wheel symbol on it the caps usually smaller then the engine coolant and black attached to a small reservoir and when you remove it will have a dipstick attached to it or small spike attached to cap this is used to measure power steering fluid, hope this helps... Thanks Mike

I'd like to change my power steering pump in my bmw 2002 x5? how do i go about doing so? thank u.


there is no special procedure to replacing the pump.loosen the bolts on the front of the pulley before you remove the belt,remove the belt,lines,then the pump.fill fluid and turn the wheel back and forth to bleed the air out.after the air is out and the steering is not making any more noise top off the fluid

2003 BMW 325I Power Steering


when looking at the engine with the hood up, look to the right hand side for something that looks like this (#1 in the pic): http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ET37&mospid=47720&btnr=32_0957&hg=32&fg=20

it will be black in color, but don't confuse it with the oil filter housing. power steering reservoir will have a unique cap (#2 in the pic) that can be removed with your hand. the one that has the large nut on top is the oil filter. remove the cap and put in the correct fluid.

hope this helped.
