No, as the system works under high pressure and requires a braided/reinforced oil resistant hose. A regular hose will just expand and blow out. If you are in a bind and can remove all old rubber. high pressure fuel line can be substitutted with heavy duty clamps. This is only temporary.

The end going to power steering pump is easily accessible, however the end connected to the steering system is not as accessible. You will need an 18mm crows foot wrench and a long extension. Or since the line is being replaced anyway, cut the metal part of the hose as close to the nut that screws into the steering as possible so that you can use a deep-well socket on a two foot extension with a swivel. The steering mechanism is located approximately below your break booster and the high pressure line is the one closest to the fire wall.

Removing the fitting from the pump is easy. I found that removing the Coolant reservoir and the plastic shroud that protects electrical wires from the S. belt and pulleys makes it easier to remove the mounting bracket down below. It is the fitting that attaches to the steering column is where the difficulties are. I found that by removing the air box and flex tube to the throttle body helped me gain limited access to the fitting. you can us a "crows foot" (18mm I believe) a short extension and a ratchet may be the answer to reaching the fitting. A stubby 18mm box wrench may work too, but its pretty tight in there. Hope this helped Tim
