pop your hood and add some ATF (automatic tranny oil) to your power steering fluid resivior, and then the noise will go away. if it returns you either have a leak or a power steering pump thats gone south

no it wont harm anything the ATF is supposed to put in the powersteering says so in the bmw manuel and on the cap. and its doing that because the pump doens't have enough fluid to pump because its low. and it makes that sound when the fluid is low.
