A leaking power steering reservoir is a common problem on early E46s. The most common fix for this is replacing the rubber gasket on the cap.
1. Remove Cap from power steering reservoir. (Figure C)
2. Pry off the old gasket from the cap. (Figure D) Replace old Gasket with newer one.
3. Replace the cap and clean the power steering reservoir. (Figure E) Refill with ATF Dexron III if fluid levels are low.
