Power steering return hose replacement?

While installing the onboard air compressor I disturbed the inept PS return hose and it decided to burst. Is there anything special regarding the replacement of this? I hope it's not a dealer item ...($$$$$) [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Power steering return hose replacement?

no.. you can get it at any auto parts joint.. its just a hose.. you cut to length.. and clamp on.. the other line is the expensive one..

Make sure the hose is compatible with P|S fluid.

Re: Power steering return hose replacement?

I took it off and it looks like a 5/8 ID hose. It has some fancy factory clamps but I guess regular hose clamps will work. It's the one that gose from the pump back to the reservoir. I don't think it has high pressure. How do you tell if the replacement is compatible with PS fluid? Is fuel hose ok?
