When pulling off the old pump i noticed a few bolts were loose, or so it seemed. But when I installed the new pump It seemed that the bolts would not get to tight? I mean there was plenty of tention but it almost seemed like there was a problem.. I tightened the bolts a little more(did not seem enough)and left it that way. The water pump ran great and the car was stable at tad under half way. I checked this afternoon and the pump was not leaking so I assume its all ok..

Also, I cleaned the power stearing hooses and pump and now it is leaking all over the place. So its time to replace the hoses, but can I get these at any local auto place or do i need bmw hoses?
