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

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

I have a 1993 BMW 318i. It makes a loud grinding/rasping noise, which I can feel in the steering wheel, when I turn to the right of left. Although the car has power steering it is also very unresponsive/...


Replace power steering rack and power steering pump. But first check fluid level. No fluid in reservoir can mimick same problem. Take off air box to adequately see level.

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

My 2002 bmw 525i makes noise when turning the steering wheel


Please describe the noise. Is the noise inside the car or beneath the car? Is it a squeak, a clink, or a grind?
If the car has over 100k miles on it, and it makes a hydraulic pump whine when you turn the wheel, look in the reservoir and see if the fluid is still bright red. If the fluid has turned brown, many (including me) have been able to quiet the whine by removing the reservoir and flushing the gunked up screen in the reservoir out with solvent, and then replacing the power steering fluid with fresh fluid.
If you do this yourself, be prepared to dedicate a whole Saturday to the job. If you have any drips from your power steering hoses (common) this will give you the excuse to get in there and replace the leaking hoses while you are at it.

Make sure the fluid level is OK, if reservoir MT ad, with out the cap till air comes out and fluid gets in to system, turn the steering right to left wile You add fluid with cap off, till fluid is not longer going down and reservoir inside gets quiet, when fluid level is OK, put cap back and try it, if system did not recovered normality and loud noise comes from the pump, pump needs replacing, if steering is steel hard, no noise comes from pump, look a steering box or steering arms, if truck has Rakenpinon, look for broken boots, pit man arm
