View Full Version : Power steering hose ?

OK my next minor issue is a leaking power steering hose.

It is leaking at the high pressure fitting at the back of the pump.

I pulled it apart and it has a tapered fitting with a large Teflon seal on the nut and not the O ring on the tube as I had seen on the XD/Xf series.

Purchased a new hose and it looks like it could be fitted either way?

Any idea if the O ring on the pipe should be at the rack or the pump.?

OK update

After going back to supplier of hose, I was advised that the fitting that goes into the pump floats and the seal is inside the fitting.

So after topping up pump and checking, there was no longer a leak, so all is now fine and a leson learnt.

I was advised this is to reduce engine vibration to the body by having that fitting float.
