    • Power steering Hose leak? Broken? Changed? Let me see yours!
      +1 You really need to clean the area first and observe the hose with pressure on it. Is the level in your power steering reservoir going down. I personally wouldn't change anything until you know there is a leak/problem. Does your steering system give you any issues?

      i like your painting in the engine bay!  what did you use?  ----- Your photos are for the air conditioner line, i believe because of the bright blue cap. The one i show is the one that goes from the Steering Wheel Reservoir into the Oil Pump and then down to the steering wheel mechanics. I am uploading more pictures right now and a Video to be more precise. Sorry my english, not my native language. As you can see, there's a little gap in the top-right photo. Is that ok? It looks like unscrewed a bit... but my main worry is that all the hose looks wet. I thought it was air conditioning line, so i was like yeah it's ok since it's cold in a heat environment it gets wet.... But it is not the air conditioner line.   >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Video: -> Hose Oil Leaking Appearance..   <<<<<<<<<<<<   I'll be waiting for more replies... please, help me out

      Here is what mine looks like. Looks like either someone used the wrong style connector on yours or didn't crimp the sleeve properly, if that even is a crimp sleeve

      If you are trying to figure out if that connection is leaking clean the area, turn the car on and have a buddy turn the steering wheel to full lock for a couple of seconds.  At full steering lock the system pressure should be highest, so you may be able to see fluid leaking from bad connections.  Just don't hold the wheel at full lock for too long, it's not great for the steering system.  If I remember I'll take some photos of my bay for you tomorrow

      Hello everyone, i alwayd expect to find answers in a forum where we share the same car and we are not always dealership friendly when it comes to maintenance of our cars.. I am being told i need to replace fillers inside the steering wheel system in one place, and in other that i have to change this hose in the picture. He said this hose has been changed its not the original. I dont remember anyone touching this from my car.... Still, it looks totally out of normal. Theres a small gap and it look dirty wet like oil. Can someone show me pictures of how its supposed to look? Any replacement recommendation? Here it costs like 30 bucks each foot of hose and i dont know what quality they are plus the closing clip it has (currently the one it has doesn't look like its closing or doing its job. Theres a small gap in it)   Check the photos. Thanks
