Power Steering Noise.

Made a post a few weeks back about this. Finally recorded the noise. Someone told me that it's Electric Steering. The fluid (I'm assuming what's the fluid reservoir) is full. Any idea on what this can be? [IMG]https://share.icloud.com/photos/04Dk...WA#Forestville[/IMG]

I've had such a noise before once. Went away on its own and sounds like the steering wheel rubs a little at its coupling area..

See, I'm hella confused. I don't have drive so someone said I have electric assist steering but I have a power steering fluid reservoir.

If you have Adaptive Drive you have a reservoir. I've EPS and the fluid reservoir for AD on my 535i.

Hydraulic pump, but for suspension (ARS) only. Steering 100% electric.

Its just maddening. Like it sounds broken. BMW said my car was "Mechanically Sound" when I had my motor replaced. So if theyre not worried maybe I shouldn't be. It just doesn't sound "Sound". Been stressing on it for a month now.
