SOURCE: 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):

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.

SOURCE: how to replace rear shocks on 2003 bmw 325i

You have to take the trunk liners off of both sides. There will be 3 13mm nuts on each side for the shocks, and under the car is a 16 or 17mm bolt that has to be removed. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

How do i change my transmission fluid bmw 2003 325i

Go to autozone or local auto parts store. Pick up the car specific fluid and pan gasket. Similar to the engine block with it's oil, the transmission block has a pan for it's fluid. It should be as easy as jacking up your car, finding this transmission pan, loosening the 8-9 bolts in a pattern that drains the fluid into your pan and not your mouth. :D make sure your car isn't hot or been used in the past hour. you want to loosen these bolts together so that you don't damage the pan by warping it. TIP: after cleaning the magnet inside the pan use a bit of the new fluid to lube the lip of the pan and new gasket to ensure a secure fit. :D good luck.

How do I add transmission fluid to a 1993 BMW 325i? I can't find a place to add it anywhere... do I have to get under the car?

The Dipstick is located just under the Mass Air Sensor. You'll have easier access by taking out the air box.
