Just cleaned pulley with dishsoap & hot water and it slipped off shaft with a litle tug. Glad to replace part myself but disappointed at BMW which says no need to flush/renew PS fluids (it is aactually ATF Dexron 2). Now remember this same BMW says the transmission has lifetime fluid - AT needs no service. When fluid is oxidized, instead of renewing ATF fluid at cost of $30-$100, you simply renew or replace the whole Transmission at a cost of about $7500-$8500. DON'T BELIEVE A DAMN THING BMW TELLS YOU! Their fluids need just as much service as does an old GM Cavalier or Toyota Corolla!
