97 ford aerostar power steering line. need diagram
Not that easy to change. You may need a crow's foot wrench on the fitting where the PS hose connects to the rack and pinion-on the car frame member behind the transaxle. Raise the driver front of car on stands, remove wheel. PS hoses, the pressure line and the return line, both connect at about the same place on the rack and pinion unit. See if you can get a regular wrench on the hose in question, and loosen it. If you can, (use rags or a can to catch leaks), then take off the hose in question up top on the PS pump, or on the PS reservoir. The pressure hose comes from the pump. The return hose goes to the reservoir-or some just both go to the pump and reservoir, if it's a single unit.
Suction out the fluid from reservoir before removing hose, or you will have a big mess to clean up afterward. If loosened from top and bottom, there should be a hose holding bracket on the backside of engine or transmission.
