Steering
I have a 335xi that the steering has become unbearable, I literally have to put effort in making turns now. Not sure why the steering is so stiff but I wanted to know if anyone ran into a similar issue or know how to fix it.

Thanks!

RE: Steering
Sounds like you may have a blockage or leak.

Have you considered doing a steering fluid flush

RE: Steering
Could be the crankshaft dampener pulley is "broken", for a better word. Check your dampener pulley carefulley for cracks around the rubber coupling as the pulley could be breaking loose from the rubber and that could cause your steering to become difficult/hard/stiff.

RE: Steering
Sorry, should have asked if you have electrical steering or the standard power steering with steering pump, etc.

Yo bud, introduce yourself and your ride, share some details and pictures of it as well.

over here : https://www.bmwfanatics.co.za/forumdisplay.php?fid=16

It will generally help with getting the best feedback and quicker

for example, I'm not sure we got the xi models in SA, so some of the info might not be applicable, or that's not the car you thought it was. Is it an e90 ? e92? F-series ? these are all relevant to diagnosis.

Regards, and a warm welcome
