BMW 3 Series (E36) Power Steering Problems – Racks & Pumps

BMW E36 Power Steering RepairsThe BMW 3-Series (E36) uses a conventional fully hydraulic power steering system. The power steering system consists of a hydrulic power steering rack, pump and hoses. There is a high pressure hose connecting the pump to the rack and a low pressure return hose from the rack back to the power steering reservoir to recirculate the fluid.

We rebuild all types of power steering units, using new genuine OEM components to ensure all of our rebuilt power steering units meet & exceed OE specification. We stock some of the most common failing power steering parts and offer a fast turnaround when repairing your own unit. All of our power steering repairs come with a 2 year warranty and fitting services are available.
