Question about BMW 530

1 Answer

Steering rack I bought 2002 BMW 530i from the auction. Today after I took the car to be inspected by BMW dealer he told me that I need to change the steering rack because it's leaking. I spent hours on the net try to find a good source for a rebuild steering rack but honesty I was so confused between names and prices. The price range from $400-$1200.00. I need your help to find a good reliable and moderate price. Thank you

2002 530i "OIL" microfilter - DOES THIS PART EXIST?

THe microfilter is just the filter. The oil filter is available off the shelf at advance auto parts. It's the original equipment German brand, "Mann". It's about $12.00. The price of $300 you were quoted is more the range for a transmission oil change, not engine oil.

Don't be confused about the word"microfilter". Again, it just means the filter, same as any other car.

A fellow BMW enthusiast who has owned many of them once said "Show me a BMW that is not leaking power steering fluid, and I'll show you a BMW with no power steering fluid in it. This problem is common to the point of being universal.
If the oil stain on your garage floor is not annoying you yet, then you don't really NEED to replace the hose yet. All four of my BMWs are at least damp with oil in that area.
That being said, the high pressure hose is actually two hoses that run parallel to each other with a metal U-shaped pipe connecting them together. This assembly will run you $275 at the dealer or $225 on line.

Repair or item list for 50k mile service for my 06 530i

Probably the pollen filters as well, brake fluid and anti freeze. If this is your last free service with the dealer it pays to ask them if you can check the service schedule list for your car.
