On the BMW Mini’s it’s a common fault that the electric power steering pumps fail causing complete loss of power steering. It sometimes starts as an intermittent loss of power and progresses gradually.
The reason behind it’s common failure is because the electric power steering pump stays on even when the vehicle is switched off. The unit drains battery power but also because it is continuously on, it eventually burns out the motor inside the pump as well as it’s controlling circuitry.
Unfortunately it is a common problem and many garages and dealers that you approach for help will just insist you purchase a new unit not realising we’re able to repair them.
Yes, we can remanufacture these units and fix the problems inside which caused it to stay on and burn out in the first place. Due to the high demand, we now keep these units in stock ready to be exchanged with your old unit.
Don’t forget, you get 1 Years warranty when purchasing the pump from us, so it’s no different to buying a brand new unit from main dealer.. apart from the price difference!
