    If you do remove the expansion tank, you'll have better access to the fitting. I did it from the other side after removing the headlight. Using two pairs of pliers you can pull it back pretty easily. Tip; push it on a little as you're squeezing... Slid right off for me.

    One other tip for anyone replacing a steering component or flushing/bleeding the systemÖ

    I found this hack for turning the wheels while stationary; Apply a thin film of grease to two vinyl tiles and drive the the front wheels onto them before starting the work. This way the wheels can be turned effortlessly and it isnít necessary to have the front end off the ground. In this clip I was literally using one finger to turn the steering wheel with my right hand while reaching in through the window.

    BTW - I ended up going with a $200 Meyle PS pump, LF-20, from Bimmerworld. I’ve shyed away from Meyle stuff in the past, but it has a 4-yr warranty so I shouldn’t have to replace it again for a while. While I was in there I replaced all the hoses, and also popped off the alternator and did the OFHG. Was a fairly easy job - just hard to clean around it before removing it so cleaning was tedious to ensure nothing got into the block. I also ended up choosing a Dex III ATF for the PS fluid. Seems to work fine…will report back if I have any issues.

    Love seeing shiny new parts…
