    Head to your local auto parts store and get a new high pressure hose. They should have a pre-formed hose with threaded connectors already on it.

    To remove the old hose, just unscrew the nut on each end. The one on the back of the power steering pump is kinda tough to get at but if you lay underneath the engine you will see it.

    Installation is just reverse of removal.

    It is very easy as stated above. The hardest part I found was removing the fitting where it screws into the stearing box. Not alot of rooom to get a wrench in there sideways. I found that a crows foot wrench worked best in there. A wrench head that you attach a ratchet to. Gets a little messy with fluid dripping out, but it is really a pretty simple job.
