I recommend replacing the resevoir as well while your at it. There is a filter inside that gets clogged up over time. Its only $20 online and is very easy to replace once the fluid is drained. It drastically helped my steering out..I swapped a new one in last weekend.

Once you drained everything how much fluid did it take to fill the reservoir back up?

Thanks for this DIY write up, I did my wife's 325Ti this weekend. Everything went well. I didn't have a 22mm socket, but I did have a 22mm wrench, so I guessed on the torque spec. But given the two crush rings, you can't go very wrong.

Whole system took just less than 1 qt of ATF (Mobil 1 syn)
