Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- 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.

Repairing door handles on a BMW X5 2000 thru 2006

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- Here at Bavarian Autosport, we have found that our BMW X5 owning customers have been contacting Otto about troubles with their outer door handles not working. They note that the handle pulls normally, but the door will not open. The common problem is that the inner handle mechanism breaks and does not transfer the outer pull handle's motions to the latch release cable. The cure is to replace the inner handle mechanism. We have seen customers' shop quotes for hundreds of dollars to replace the inner handle mechanism ... and more than just a few incorrect parts replacement quotes (quotes to replace the incorrect parts). Since one of our purchasers had an X5 with BOTH front door handles inoperative, Otto decided to have a look and see just what the problem was and determine if the replacement is a reasonable DIY task. We found that the inner handle mechanism was indeed the culprit and the repair is no more difficult than the common window regulator replacement. Come on along as we show the steps for replacing the X5 inner door handle mechanism on a 2004 x5 3.0i. All E53 x5 models (00-06) will be as shown in this video. Note that you may wish to order a few new inner door trim panel securing clips. It is very common that some of the clips will break, or already be broken from a prior door panel removal. We replaced six clips on the door panel shown in this video. Additionally, if you find that the vapor barrier panel is ripped or damaged, this should be replaced to prevent water entry to the cabin. Bavarian Autosport stocks the clips, vapor barrier and the vapor barrier adhesive as well as the handle mechanisms. Parts: Inner door handle mechanism -- Left or Right (various PNs) Door trim panel clips - 51 41 8 224 768 Vapor barrier -- Left 51 48 8 402 389 or Right 51 48 8 402 390 Vapor barrier adhesive -- 08612 Tools: Non-Marring pry tools -- various PNs Torx bit set, T10-T50 - 26550 Metric socket and ratchet set -- ΒΌ " and 3/8" drive, 8mm through 13mm Metric combination wrench set -- 8mm through 13mm 4mm long ball-end Allen wrench Various common mechanic's hand tools -- Screwdrivers, pliers, pry bars, etc. -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
