  • 120I Newbie needs power steering help :-(

    hey fellow BMW family!

    Im from South Australia. I recently purchased a BMW 120i YOM 2006. There was 136,000kms on the clock. And this is my 1st BMW

    1st few months I thought the steering is stiff as I was always a Honda guy and I thought "this is a BMW thing"

    I then checked power steering fluid - it was empty and i topped it. But still the steering is a bit stiff.

    How would I know if its a power steering pump fail?

    normally you can work out if the pump has failed when trying to park. You would almost not be able to turn the wheel (like the good old days!).

    I would also take it to an independent to get it scanned for errors (and see if anything else is wrong). Where abouts in SA are you?

    Some other readings;
