In this DIY and How-To video, we'll show you how to change the power
steering fluid and filter on a later model BMW or MINI. Follow along as we
replace the reservoir/filter and flush the fluid on a 2001 330xi,
The power steering fluid and filter are one of the most overlooked
preventive maintenance areas on most BMWs and MINIs. (Think about it --
when did you ever changed the power steering fluid on any vehicle?) On
BMWs, this system provides Boost not
just for the steering but often for the power brakes and self-leveling
suspensions, as well. Time and time again, we'll look at the power steering
fluid in a BMW or MINI and it is filthy! (Running on old, degraded fluid
will shorten the useful life of the steering rack/gearbox, brake Booster, fluid pump, etc.) The fluid should be
bright, clear red or, depending on the application, just clean and clear
One of the reasons this system gets overlooked is that there is no direct
provision for changing the fluid; therefore the job is a bit more tedious.
But it is not so tedious that it should be ignored. We recommend a biennial
(every other year) or 50,000-mile fluid change for the power Boost system. Additionally, most systems have
a fluid filter incorporated into the fluid reservoir. (A lot of mechanics
do not even know that this filter exists!) Change the filter when changing
the fluid. (This is also a great time to replace any leaking power steering
hoses.) There are three different fluids used in BMWs and MINIs; the
correct fluid is typically noted on a label on the reservoir cap. We can
assist in determining the proper filter and fluid for your BMW or MINI.
