Question about 2004 Jeep Liberty
I have a 2004 Jeep Liberty sport with a power steering fluid leak. It does not seem to be coming from the hoses. Any ideas where else I could look?
I just had a similar problem with my 2002 Liberty with 130,000 miles and wrestled with it this past weekend. The symptom was red fluid on the garage floor near the very front of the vehicle.
I traced the leak to a power steering hose assembly. The hose assembly is just behind the driver's side headlight and runs from just below the power steering reservoir to the power steering unit. The hose assembly costs around $200. The guy at the Jeep parts counter indicated that he sells a lot of them.
Replacement is somewhat difficult and it is helpful to have both a metric and inch size crows foot wrench sets to unfasten/fasten the hose. Kind of unusual that one end of the hose fits a metric wrench and the other fits an inch-size wrench. There is a bracket that holds the hose in place and it is very difficult to get access to it. Suggest using an articulating 10mm gear wrench to fasten/unfasten the bracket bolts. It also helps to remove the serpentine belt, front grill, battery, battery tray, horn and driver's side headlight assembly to ease access.
