Subject: RE: <E28> How to rebuild your P/S box
Tools - all hand tools (removal and rebuild), 13mm socket, a few
screwdrivers, lots of clean rags. Most of the tools are involved in
the removal of the box and it's pretty straightforward. I used a
eyeglasses screwdriver to remove the original seals. They are tough
plastic, but I didn't want to break them removing them - just in case.
I got them all out with very little deformity.
I assume the center numbness (I had plenty) went away because I had no
visible hardware wear, and the original seals were virtually worn down
to the point of being ineffective. The new seals (and newly rebuilt
P/S pump) greatly increased operating pressure so the box should be
working as it was intended to. Just theory, but it works.

Thanks for posting the e28 p/s pump/box rebuild notes.
What tools did you need to rebuild the box itself?
Any idea why the play at center went away?
