About Power Steering Pulleys
The power steering pulleys function is to drive the power steering pump on a vehicle. It is usually made of solid steel because of the amount of strain that the pulley experiences through use. They operate at faster-than-engine speed. A power steering pulley will experience a huge amount of torque and speed so lightweight materials are not recommended for its construction as it could break or bend under the strain of the load. Because of this strong material it is unlikely that a power steering pulley will malfunction, and removal will only usually be in order if replacing the power steering pump. In the event that you need to remove a power steering pulley you should use the specialised tool for the job.
There are two different types of power steering pulley in operation and are powered either by the serpentine belt or single V-Type belt. The benefit of the serpentine belt is that it is less likely to break than the single V-type, meaning that the power steering pulley is more reliable.
Signs that the power steering pulley is not operating correctly could include squealing noises when driving or steering which tends to veer or shift to the side.
- Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
- The Cold War affected BMW sales so significantly that the company was nearly bought out by their arch-rivals Mercedes in 1959. A silent investor saved the company, but the rivalry between BMW and Mercedes Benz is ongoing.
- It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
- One of the reasons older BMWs keep their value is because it's easy to get spare parts for even the oldest models. That's because BMW has carried on making car parts, even for cars that were built in WWII.
- The main headquarters for BMW in Munich is designed and shaped to look like car parts. There was a whole new 'four-cylinder' building added on in 1973, and there's definitely the look of an engine about the architecture.
