2003 BMW 745i Base 8 Cyl 4.4L

Steering & Suspension

i'm leaking a oily-type fluid (Brownish) from the very front of the car.

think it may be power steering fluid since i hear a 'creak' noise sometimes when i turn the steering wheel. can't seem to locate the power steering fluid resevoir under the hood. is it reachable by me so i can check this?

Your power steering reservoir is most likely located near a pulley on the belt. Most power steering pumps are powered by a pulley so it should be near there. Although it might be electrically powered. Just look for a cap that says POWER STEERING or a picture of a steering wheel on it
