The power steering pumps from the older BMW’s were much more reliable. It seems the later models have come fitted with a new Domed Shaped power steering pump, manufactured by LUK and with many common failures, most of which cause them to lose pressure or fail to hold pressure for as long as required. When we say domed shape, we’re referring to the back plate on the pump being domed shape. They are also failing on their level of noise, overtime they are becoming noisy and in some cases leak air into the system and fluid out which eventually will cause the pump to run dry and cause excessive wear to the internal moving parts.
Due to the popular demand, we keep the very latest design of these pumps – Genuine LUK parts, on the shelf and ready for dispatch. They are a direct replacement to those that come fitted to the vehicle and to this day we have proven to succeed the expectations from our trade clients and are now offering these pumps direct to the public at a very affordable price.
The Domed Shape LUK pumps have a tendency to snap the internal shaft in which case almost any company would charge a surcharge due to the pump being unrepairable. We are aware of these common faults and will not charge you or hold on to any surcharge. So if you’re having a steering issue which relates to the power steering pump, check first to see whether it’s a domed shaped LUK pump and if it is, give us a call today and let us help you.
