How do I replace power steering fluid in 2001 BMW 740IL?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Ron, This is really a service that should be done at your dealership. Because this system is pressurized, it is best to let a certified technician do it. The dealership also has the proper equipment to remove all the old fluid, which you would not be able to do. I can appreciate your wanting to do this yourself, however this service is best left to the trained technician. Take it to your authorized BMW dealer for service because I believe if you go somewhere else, it might void the warranty. If you are not worried about that part, just make sure you take it to a technician who works on BMWs. Lori
