I have a EB and i have noticed that I have a hole in my power steering lines, I noticed that the split is directly under where the engine sits. Will this just require a new hose and how hard is it to fix?, Im thinking fairly easy.

Its pretty bad I need to get home this weekend, so I am driving it as minimal as possible, how long can I dive it for?

Its going though a whole bottle of power steering fluid in about 2 days.

disconnect the power steering belt and drive slower/more catious and wrestle with the wheel. Dunno about replacing the pipe but i had to drive around for 2 or 3 days without power steering and its managable, just gotta take it easy.

oh and a bit of upper body strength doesnt go astray :roll: :roll:

check that you might get away with replacing the hose.. rather than the whole unit before hand...
