Using a flair nut wrench, disconnect both ends of the hose & remove it. New one goes back in the same way other one came out. Make sure that any "o" rings (if any) are replaced as new (usually supplied with hose if they're supposed to be there). Make sure that fittings are threading squarely into components and can be finger tightened at least part way to avoid cross-threading fittings. When finished, make sure that hose is not rubbing on anything or it will wear a hole at that point.
RE-fill pump, start vehicle, turn steering wheel all the way to the left, hold it there and count to ten, center wheel, re-fill pump, repeat process, all way to right. (this removes air from system). Top off, check for leaks and you are finished!

SOURCE: where is the pressure hose to the powersteering

It is connected to the rack and pinion and leads all the way to the power steering pump which has a pulley on it.
It may have 1 or 2 rubber bends on it with steel on the rest.
The pressure hose carries higher pressure than the return line.

hope this helps.

I have a 2001 ford windstar that we have replaced both the powersteering pump, and the attached high pressure hose twice in a months time. The hose keeps blowing the seal just before the threads where it...

Hi Brenda, I'm glad to help!

Brenda, 3 things could be causing this issue. (1) The steering rack could be putting excessive pressure on the pump. (2) The pump that was replaced could be bad. (3) The hose is not fully seated and tightened properly. The repair shop needs to hook up a pressure tester to the pump and see how much pressure it is performing. Excessive pressures from the pump can blow hoses and seals. NOTE: I would make sure the hose is fully tightened before the pressures are checked. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Brenda.

Replace powersteering line

Work with me on this.
There are two "kinds" of hoses. High pressure and low pressure.
High pressure hoses have a high pressure fitting on each end.
Low pressure hoses often have a pressure fitting on one end, and nothing more than a hose clamp (band clamp) on the other end.
See if yours has two identifiable hoses, one of each.
Before you take any parts off, know that it is possible you only need to tighten a hose connection.
This I found true in about 1/2 the cases.
You can change either hose yourself, but know that you might really wish you hadn't!
You may discover you have to take many parts off to get to the hoses, and be prepared to spend many hours on the job.

My 1999 vw Bug keeps leaking out power steering fluid .

Well sounds like your pressure side of the powersteering has blown the hose.. you need to order a new pressure hose from the parts store and get it replaced and refill the powersteering tank.. Thanks jerry ...
