Power Steering Fluid - ATF or CHF?
The Bentley manual warns us not to mix the two types of power steering fluid. And it sounds like the car could have been built with either type. The circular green label on my PS reservoir fell off some time ago and I lost it. On the housing itself, it reads "ATF only."
On the wife's X3 (same motor, PS reservoir and MY) the label reads "CHF only." I removed the green label on her car and sure enough, her housing also reads "ATF only."
The PS fluid is low and I need to add some. The E60 has a May 2006 build date and I was wondering if someone out there with a similar car (2007 530i non sports package) and build date could look at their green label and confirm it says "CHF only." In fact, does anyone have a green label that does NOT say "CHF only"?
