Power steering hoses are made to withstand very high hydraulic pressures.
They are assembled with equipment made to do that which is impractical for a home-owner or even most shops to buy.
Your only two options in your case are either to buy a replacement hose (pre assembled) or to have a specialty shop (usually large machine shops that do work for heavy equipment or farm vehicles offer that service) make you a new hose.
Anything you try at home will quickly blow apart.

Replace high pressure power steering hose


Very easy job.Replacement part from auto parts store ran me $13.99, and had the o-rings with it. You will need an 18mm open end wrench and I found that the 5/8's actually worked better on the other end. First use a turkey baster to remove the fluid from the reservoir to help with excess leakage. Place a drip pan under the power steering unit. Remove the bottom line fitting first which will help with drainage without extra splashing. Remove top fitting after the unit has drained. Put o-rings on the ends of the new hose after moistening with new power steering fluid.Replace hose with the new one tightening to 35-50 # pressure ( Hand tight should be fine.) Fill unit with NEW power steering fluid and start engine. Turn wheel completely from side to side a few times to allow fluid to replace air in the line.Check for leaks at connection. Turn vehicle off and wait about 15 minute and repeat wheel turning process again with engine running to remove excess air. If you find no leaks then you should be just fine. I completed in about 20 minutes and I am just a shade tree mechanic. Good luck.

Length of power steering lines


Your power steering hoses are custom length per application. Meaning your Caravans' hoses fit only Caravans with same engine, etc. If your contemplating using some other PS hose from some other car that's kind of a "****-shoot". Hoses vary from fittings sizes, types of fittings, ID of hose and thickness of hose. You might want to check local parts store for exact replacement.

How do i replace power steering hose on my 2005 magnum r/t


undo the nut at the end of the hose closest to the power steering unit and let the oil drain into a container, then undo the other end and remove the hose, you will have to go to a hydraulic hose repairer to have a new hose made up for you or you can go to the dodge dealership and buy an original over the counter. When you have the new one put it on, fill the power steering resevoir to the full mark, start the car up and turn the steering from right to left or left to right which ever feels good for you, this will expel any air in the unit and stop it from groaning, recheck the oil level before taking for a test drive

HOW DO YOU TAKE OFF A POWER STEERING LINE? I HAVE A 96 FORD E150 5.8


When power steering hose replacement is required, follow these steps:
  1. With the engine stopped, remove the return hose at the power steering gear, and allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. On some cars, the vehicle must be lifted on a hoist to replace the power steering hoses.
  2. Loosen and remove all hose fittings from the pump and steering gear.
  3. Remove all hose-to-chassis clips.
  4. Remove the hoses from the chassis, and cap the pump and steering fittings.
  5. If O-rings are used on the hose ends, install new O-rings. TRW steering gear cylinder lines have gaskets that are serviced as a unit. The old gasket must be pried out of the fittings in the housing before the new lines and gaskets are installed. Lubricate O-rings with power steering fluid.
  6. Reverse steps 1 through 4 to install the power steering hoses. Tighten all fittings to the manufacturer's specified torque. Be sure all hose-to-chassis clips are in place. Do not position hoses where they rub on other components.
  7. Fill the pump reservoir to the full mark with the manufacturer's recommended fluid. Bleed air from the power steering system. Check the fluid level in the reservoir and add fluid as required.
