Pull steering wheel without steering wheel puller


To do this you need two ball pin hammers. First you need to remove the horn cover and then you need to loosen the large nut that tightens onto the steering column. Loose the large nut to the top of the shaft put your knees under the steering wheel and push upward as you put one hammer over the large nut and then hit that one with the second one and it should pop off the spline it is pressed to. Be sure you are wearing safety glasses as you do this in case the hammer chips a piece off.

2006 bmw 325i...where is the power steering reservior.


The power steering reservoir should be just under the oil filter housing (round black case with a large nut on the top). It should have a star-shaped handle on it.

E46 BMWs use ATF in their power steering so make sure you use the right fluid.

Remove PW steering hose


Hi,

The tools required are :-

  • Large crescent wrench
  • Small crescent wrench
  • Drain pan
  • Shop towel
A Generic Procedure ( This example is for Other brand but might help you, if needed ) is :-

Step 1

The power steering pump is located on the right fire wall of your vehicle. Place the drain pan directly under the power steering pump and use your small crescent wrench to open the drain plug by turning it counterclockwise until removed. Take care that the car has had time to cool so that you do not burn yourself with the hot fluid. Allow the fluid to drain until it is slowly dripping.

Step 2

Use your large crescent wrench to turn the power steering line nut counterclockwise until it is completely loose. The line will not come off at this point.

Step 3

Use your large crescent wrench to turn the bottom power steering line nut counterclockwise until free. Pull slightly upward and free the line from its seat. Both ends of the line will now come free and the line is removed.

Step 4

To replace the line, use the same procedure in reverse. Put the drain plug back in and add the appropriate amount of fluid.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How to change inner tie rod ends?


if fluid is flowing out the bellows, you need to replace the steering rack assembly. There is no fluid in the area of the inner tie rod. The seal is just before the tie rod.

Steering Gear
The power rack and pinion steering gear is serviced as a power steering short rack (3L547). The front wheel spindle tie rods (3280) and tie rod ends (3A130) are serviced individually. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • The power rack and pinion steering gear incorporates quick connect fittings for the power steering pressure hose (3A719) and power steering return hose (3A713) that allow the lines to swivel. This is normal and does not indicate loose fittings.
  • If the fittings leak, check to make sure they are tightened to 14-20 Nm (10-14 lb-ft). Do not overtighten.
  • If the leak is not corrected, replace the fitting seals.

No power steering when engine is on.


Is there a large puddle under your vehicle? Your car's power steering is powered by power steering fluid and the belt turning this pump. So either you ran out of fluid due to a slow leak, the belt is not turning the pump, or you have a large leak and you lost all of your fluid at one time. It would be a good start by checking the power steering fluid, and the belt.
