2001 BMW iL - Power Steering Fluid

Owner’s Manual does not address it. Dealer says only they can do it. CAN I ADD POWER STEERING FLUID MYSELF W/O TAKING TO DEALER? It has a slow leak but I can’t afford to have it repaired at this time. It has begun to growel when I turn the steering wheel. Thanks.

So, if you go up to the bmw dealer’s parts counter, they refuse to sell you the power steering fluid? And isn’t it a simple matter to add it? I don’t get your dealer. Anyway, you need to find an independent garage to help you, this car will need lots of TLC in the future (unfortunately), and you don’t want to be paying dealer rates for it.
