SOURCE: Power steering stiff - is it the pump ? or the steering rack?

If the wheel binds up or you encounter harder steering in one direction but not the other, it's your rack. Check for leaks, is it from the connecting hose or the rack itself. Can't find it? It's usually on the bottom rear of your engine,a tie rod on either side will attach to your steering knuckle. If your steering is stiff while wheel is centered or at maximum lock it's your pump.

Never worked on a mini in particular. Doing a quick google search and pumps (minus labour) seem to be 350-450$ depending where you go, unless there's some crazy book time i'm unaware of, 1300$ seems pretty steep.

Is there a noise when you turn? If there is, jack up the front end and remove the cap off your power steering resevoir. Slowly turn the wheel from lock to lock, while the engine is running, to bleed any air out of the system
If you replace one or the other, don't forget to do the above step.

check the power steering fluid if it is full then you would have to replace your power steering pump if not you might have a leak and if so get that fixed before you destroy your power steering pump.

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): 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: CVT transmission fluid mini cooper 04 automatic

The manual has a mis print, according to MINI the correct oil to use is ESSO CVT Z2L 799 fluid and there are no other manufacturers that use it so sorry but you will have to buy it from the main dealer.

Is there an alternative power steering oil other than the pentoshin chf 11s for a mini cooper s


You can run Havoline Power Steering fluid. Look for the one with the Volkswagen TL-VW-570-26 approval spec on the bottle, it is the same P.S. fluid as Mini Cooper and Audi uses

Where do you put the steering fluid in for a 2006 mini cooper? There's nothing in the owners manual about steering fluid.


Every answer here is wrong. Your Mini Cooper has electric power steering. No service required. That is why it does not list fluid type in your owner's manual.

MINI ONE POWER STEERING COMES AND GOES AFTER PUMP REPLACED


2 posible solutions to your problemone is that the rack and pinion unit has a restriction inside. if you remove the return line to the power steering pump and hold over a pan start engine and the pump will push old fluid into the pan instead of recirculating back into the system. you must keep power steering pump full of fluid because the return fluid is being pumped out of the system.also some models have an electric sensor switch on the pressure line that adjusts pressure by how fast the car is going.faster the car travels less power steering pressure

I lost power steering today, it came back after i


I would start by checking the power steering fluid level. then check the belt to make sure it's ok. Make sure there's no leaks...
P/S pumps don't go out often ,but it may be if every thing else is ok.
Start with the simple stuff first..

Where do you add power stering fluid?


The power steering reservoir looks to be right next to a clear fluid reservoir, most likely for coolant but could be windshield washer fluid. Its a small black reservoir. It takes Pentosin chf 11s hydraulic fluid.
