    Had this issue on and off for awhile. Switch engine on off seems to reset it but it's annoying!

    Do you use the Display Key?

    I use mine. Slip it in the trouser pocket and done. If you got one use it othervise its just a paper weight

    not sure on this one - question

    hi i did not do all these checks that you mentioned. i have checked the usual fluid levels, filter at bottom all seem clean and fine. it is not a major problem TBH not had time recently to have a through look. just the odd time that i turn a tight corner and power has gone from steering. onnce the revs are slightly up again power is fine. i do thinks it could be a pressure issue or maybe pump belt or pump itself. i just assumed this issue could be a common one on the e28.

    filter is clean. my engine is 3.5LTR i may need to check PS pulleys.
  10. had a issue with power steering while i am going round a tight corner or even a drivethrough... i am driving slow then the steering will lock up... rev the car and all is fine. anything to do with pump and low pressure while revs are low? anyone had similar issues? checked pump and fluid - all seems fine...
