Here is a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a leaky power steering pressure line. The part is readily available at places like Autozone and many others. Replacement cost for the hose was $27. Not a very difficult job and it only requires a few hand tools.

    • With the three bolts remove the air filter housing can simply removed. This gives full access to the power steering gear and hoses.

    • New line.

    • Use a 16mm x 18mm flare nut wrench. It will be safer than an open end wrench since it provides a better grip. This will prevent any damage to the flare nut on the hose.

    • Disconnect the hose on the power steering pump by loosing the flare nut in a counter clockwise rotation

Doing this job today thanks for making this! I didn't know I would need a flare nut wrench and luckily found one pretty cheap

After topping up the steering fluid, the system can be bled again by turning the wheels from left lock to right lock a few times. Much easier when both wheels are off the ground.

Does the fluid not need to be drained out before removing the line?

Dave - Responder

@dave7777 nope. Place a rag under the hose before you take it off so it does not leave to much of a mess. Check the fluid after.
