Question about 2003 BMW 325
My steering wheel is hard to turn, started this weekend, power steering fluid is not clear.
Had a new pump fitted June 2008 after only having the car 3 days. Under warranty so does not cost me.
Had the same issue as the person who experienced the clicking. Thought maybe one of the panels protecting the engine underneath the front spoiler had broken and got caught up in the steering column. Indeed one on the right had been pushed into the steering after a holding pin had snapped moving the panel in towards the car. The panel was shredded in the corner where I suspected it had been hitting the wheel.
Thought that was my issue and had no more noises or hard turning issues. Last night the pump went for a second time.
Have not checked the fluid but the whole pump was only relpaced in June 2008 so it could have been leaking. I have a gravel drive so will not be able to tell.

If the power steering fluid is full and belts ok but, it happened suddenly, provably the power steering pump shaft was broken.
