A little over a year ago my power steering pump went out and was replaced by the BMW dealer, since I had just bought the car from them a week before. This weekend I lost power steering again. My car is a 2003 330i w/sport pkg and 66k miles. Last time they told me the shaft had sheered off at 55k miles. I called the dealer and they said replacement parts were covered 2 years or 24k miles, but they couldn't even get it in to look at it for at least a week. My question is; to those of you who have delt with similar issues is, do you think they will charge me labor even if the part is covered? Also can I drive it this way since i have to wait so long. The resivior has the proper amount of fluid, and does not appear to be loosing any fluid. Thanks in advance for your replies.
