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.

SOURCE: How do I replace power steering pump

first Allow the engine to cool completely Make sure all connections have been tightened to the proper torque settings; power steering fluid pumps at an extremely high pressure.Apply penetrating spray to bolts, nuts, and hose connections Chock all wheels that are not raised off the ground. Don't forget to dispose of all used fluids according to local laws.
First, remove the old pump. You may need to raise your vehicle. Use a jack to do this. For added protection, place a safety stand underneath that part of the frame. (Caution: always use extreme care when jacking up your vehicle and putting it on a safety stand.)
If you are working near the battery, remove the negative battery cable. Remove any parts that might get in the way of pulling out the power steering hoses or pump. Drain the power steering fluid from the reservoir. To do this, you disconnect the feed and return lines and drain the fluid into a drain pan, or use a siphon. (You may need special "line" wrenches to loosen the lines if a regular wrench doesn't do the job.) Make sure to loosen the lines before removing the pump mounting bolts. To avoid possible combustion, take care when draining the fluid to avoid spilling it onto any belts or exhaust parts.
Remove the power steering pump bolts. On some vehicles, you can loosen the bolts by placing a socket through the holes in the pump's pulley.
You may be able to return the old pump for a core refund, so drain it completely of fluid and place it in the box from you new pump. To install the new pump, first install the pulley from the old pump onto the new pump, if necessary. Place the new pump in the proper position. If possible, attach return and feed hoses to the pump before bolting it in place. Install pump mounting bolts; torque to specification. (On V-belt models, tighten but don't torque the bolts yet
Attach and tighten feed and return hoses to pump. Double-check all connections for leaks. Reinstall any belts that were removed; adjust belt tension. Tighten V-belt style mounting bolts after you have adjusted belt tension. Reinstall other parts that were removed (shields, brackets, exhaust, etc.).
Fill system with new power steering fluid. Check for leaks. If there are none, place the lid on the reservoir. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start engine; again inspect for leaks.
You will need to "bleed" the system to remove any air. (Note: bleeding instructions vary from vehicle to vehicle. Check a repair manual.)
Raise both front wheels off of the ground. With the engine running, slowly turn the steering wheel left to right, lightly touching the steering stop points. Check fluid level. Repeat in order to remove all air. After you are satisfied all air is out of the system, lower the vehicle. Job complete

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.
