Replacement for BMW part numbers 32131096280 and 32131469273.
+ Inspected and hydraulically tested
+ OE-grade, high-temperature seals and o-rings
+ New inner tie rods, boots, and OEM clamps included (outer tie rods sold separately, see below)
+ Electrostatic chemical-resistant black finishFluid note:
rebuilt racks are designed with seals compatible with Pentosin CHF11S or EHF
. ATF or similar "Power Steering Fluid" should not be used. Mixing CHF and ATF is not recommended and may lead to premature failure of the seals, pump, or rack and void the warranty. A complete flush of the entire steering system is recommended. We strongly urge you to add the CHF label to the cap on your reservoir (BMW part #71212122171).
