I have a 1986 BMW 325es and I noticed that the power steering fluid
keeps leaking. I looked down and there are two hoses that come out of
the end of the resorvios, one goes to the front of the car and the
other one goes towards the steering of the car.
I looked down and the hose that goes to the power steering pump (close
to the radiator) does not leak but, the other hose that goes to the
steering culumb (I think) is the one that is leaking. Now, I do not
see the actual leak, I think I need to get under the car and check it
My question is this, is it possible to get undet there and see if the
hose is busted and replace it or, it is something that a mechanic can
do( needs special tool, car needs to be lifted becase there is not
room under the car).
Has anybody done anything like this on these models? Is it easy to do?
Is ehre a picture of this somewhere where I can look and find out what
I am up against before trying to get under the car?
By the way the car is 5 speed and in US.
Thanks a bunch?
