It's not all that complicated, however the clearance (or lack of it) involved in getting the lines off the power steering rack may drive you a little nuts. Getting the lines off the pump isn't that much of an issue. I would call this job not "difficult", but time consuming.

Power steering pressure hose replacement


I need more info to help you. Take it to a good shop. It is ok to drive it there, just try to tape or plug or wrap the hose just in case all the fluid has not drained out you don't want to make a mess. It will be hard to steer, you will just have to drive old school, like it was before power steering. Mike

How do i flush the hydraulic steering system


You really can't flush out the steering system fluid other then siphoning the fluid out of the steering pump reservoir. This is the easy way.
The hard way:
Remove the filler cap from the top of your power steering system then disconnect the reservoir's hose. It should be located on the bottom of the reservoir. The hose can be tough to remove, so make sure you have plenty of patience.

Replace the reservoir's hose with another hose. It should lead to an empty container. You'll use this container to store the old power steering fluid as it leaves the reservoir. Lift the front end of your car off the ground by using a car jack.

Add new power steering fluid to the reservoir. As you add the new lubricant, it will force the old lubricant into the tube you've connected to the bottom of the reservoir.

Climb into the drivers seat and rack your steering wheel back and forth. The wheel should be locked in place, allowing only a slight range of mobility. This will help the extra lubricant within the power steering system to drain.

Watch the empty container. It should fill with old lubricant. Once the old lubricant has been flushed and you see clean fluid replacing it, you've finished the hard part.

Disconnect your hose and move the container. Replace the original reservoir hose. Pour new, clean power steering fluid into the reservoir. Rack your steering wheel a few more times to squeeze out air that might be trapped in the lines. Replace the filer cap and close your done.

Thank you for suing fixya and good luck
