Hi Maldon,

I haven't heard the noise, but it's usually the belt. Check its tension, check it for frays or wear.

No filter. If the pump it going out, the reservoir and pump are a single unit and need to be replaced as such.

Best regards

Mike

Ok first off i would flush out the old fluid and put new in there is no need to jump right into replacing parts just yet, there is no filter on the power steering system so all that you can do is have it flushed first, its the cheaper alternitive to replacing a pump
if that does not fix the noise then the pump is the next step... and no i would not do this at home it takes a flush machine to flush the power steering out youwill damage the unit if you try and do it at home.

2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise


It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.

Power steering pump


Yes in most cases the pump rotor vanes cause this noise, there are additives that can help like one made by Lucas Oil, but if it is really whinning then that will be a watse of money, if you end up putting on a rebuilt pump make sure to flush all the old fluid out or the pump you just spent your hard earned money on will get noisey to.
