There's 2 hoses between the pump and the rack, a high pressure hose and a low pressure return hose. Both can be replaced by the home mechanic.

Not sure on the replacement cost, high pressure one is obviously dearer.

Prob just best to replace the the high pres one it comes with new o-rings ...

they wear out over time ... Normally the heat from extractors/headers make it weak
