Power steering hose replacement

I need to replace the power steering hoses.

Are you able to get to the rear pump fitting without removing the pump, or do you have to take off the serpitine belt and loosen the pump to get to it?

On the hose going to the steering box ---I guess the best method is to remove the drivers wheel and wheel liner and go in from there for the steering box fitting?

Any other advice would be appreciated.


Thanks,

Richard

i just had to do this on my truck about 3 months ago the easiest way i could find to do it was to take the wheel off and the splash shield then remove intercooler pipe... they are a b!tch but seemed to be the easiest way hopes this helps

I second what motox81 said. I was able to do it without removing the pump or serpentine belt...but you definitely have to remove the wheel, wheel well liner and intercooler tube. It's the perfect time to check for intercooler tube rub through, and when you re-assemble make sure the power steering line doesn't rub on the intercooler tube.

Did mine a few months ago and fixed a massive hole in the intercooler tube as well. Didn't take long, I would rate it a 1-1/2 hour job, with 1/2 hour getting the truck in the air, tire and wheel well liner off............nothing that difficult.

This the best way, and replace both hoses while you have it apart. If 1 is bad the other will be or on its way.

I just replaced the steering box on mine and didn't need to take the tire off. But if you take the intercooler pipe out, it makes disconnecting and connecting the lines to the box alot easier.
