Q: Does the power steering pump come with the belt, hoses and steering rack? 2000 BMW 323ci

asked by on July 18, 2017

The steering wheel fluid is not pumping through, making the steering very hard. I think the power steering pump needs to be replaced but I don't know if this includes the belts, hoses and steering rack.
My car has an automatic transmission.
