Well, if you own one you know that the power steering reservoir is just nasty, leaking, filth!  I had my power steering hoses replaced under my original BMW warranty, but this reservoir just leaked and leaked.  It can make it look like the hoses are leaking, the clamps aren't tight and so on.  While inspecting the cap, I noticed a little rubber O-Ring in the cap that had been mutilated from taking the cap on and off, plus I assume the heat these cars generate under the hood played a big roll in the demise of this O-Ring.

So I searched the parts database and sure enough I found a new O-Ring for the reservoir.

Parts:

Tools:

  • O-Ring Pick, but you can use whatever you think will pry it out.

Enjoy, and remember ALWAYS work safe and I assume NO RESPONSIBILITY for your actions, mechanical abilities or anything that may occur during the nature of the repairs.

All these years with that wet, dirty power steering reservoir and this is all it was, blah!  It's hidden, that little whore....ha-ha-ha:
Pull out captain hook, since you might get sick of seeing my hands...lol...lol:
It was definitely deformed from years of being there:
Action shot, side by side....top = old, bottom = new:
 
Another action shot, new one installed....:
 
And the tool that made it all possible, oh and I used this for the clips coming off the injectors / electrical box thing also. A must have as it was $5 and has easily paid for itself:
