Hi guys,

I noticed some oil on the ground this morning before work and thought I'd have a look into it when I get home.

Turns out to be the high pressure hose from the pump end. I've searched here to find that it is infact the O-ring and the swivel part of the hose, so I'm planning on going to get a new hose tomorrow because I'm not too confident about cutting that nut at the pump end. But for the life of me I can't get the hose out of the rack end, all I can do is wiggle it but it won't come out. Car is on stands as I was having a look underneath. It's an EF and any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys! :!:

Just cut the nut. Be gentle and take your time.

Any other ideas? Is it meant to be hard to get the hose out of the rack end?

Thanks!

That's about it - renew the O ring and don't cross thread the nut putting it back on the rack.
