Power Steering Hose

Has anybody tried to repair their high pressure power steering hose above the exhaust? Heat got to mine and it's only the short rubber section over the manifold. If not, maybe someone could tell me how to get the old hose out. I can't find how to replace the the hose in the manual.

That's a tough one b/c i was leaking myself from the hose right above the exhaust manifold...

The only way to repair that leak is to buy an entire new line(not a fun job). Local parts stores may carry them...

screw buying a new hose, you'll be right back in the same problem again. How good are you with working with s/s braided lines? AN fittings. See if you can go to a local hydraulics place and see if they can mate a fitting to the end of the pipe that comes out of the P/S pump and then you can route a S/S line up along the driver's side over the strut/shock tower and down to the rack.

Just a thought. No sence on having to fix it again and again. This is one of the major problems with the Prelude. Too many lines busted and caught the engine on fire. I guess the Japanese never thought that far out.

Good luck

I went with a new hose and it wasn't an easy job. I am hoping the heat doesn't get to this hose anytime soon. The new hose came with a heat wrap, I just hope it's enough.

I went with a new hose as well. Not that fun to change but no more more leaks now.

It is a horrible job. Been there and dealt with that. You can always use a thermal sleeve to cover the hose and help further protect it. An aftermarket hose is the best solution however.
