Power steering line below fan is ruptured. it is a rubber line but im not sure sbout the connection do i need i special tool to take this hose off?

There are two lines on the p/s. one has hose clamps securing it. That one is the return hose. The other one is the high pressure line, which has flair nut fittings on the ends. There is no way to repair that one (pressure will blow any repair apart). Use flair nut wrenches to remove both ends and replace it (commonly available part). Don't loose the small "o" rings on the ends and be careful when putting them back on. Check the hose after it's installed to make sure it isn't touching anything that will chafe or cut into it.
Once installed fill the reservoir, start the engine and turn the wheel all the way to the left, then to the right, then to center and re-fill to proper level if necessary. Check both ends for leaks and you are done!

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 ...

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!
