86 BMW 528E leaking fluid/making noise

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  86 BMW 528E leaking fluid/making noise

My son has an 86 BMW 528E that makes a noise when the wheels are turned either to the right or left. It is also leaking some sort of fluid while the wheels are turned. When the car is jacked up, leaving both front wheels off the ground, there is no fluid loss nor a noise made. Any ideas?

need to know wat type of sound it is, but it seems like its the power steering. the fluid is most probably the PS fluid, since it leaks and sounds while the wheels get turned and never else.

it could be either a broken line, or a broken PS pump. have them looked at.

It's a grinding noise.

The grinding noise could be the Rack & Pinion..
