Power Steering High Pressure Line/Hose Help!

I have a '97 prelude stick shift. I want to see if anyone can confirm if this is the right location(red circle on the photo) to remove & if it is the power steering high pressure hose. I'm in the process or replacing the PS pressure line because it's leaking. I was having issues trying to take it off but don't have the time on weekdays. I've seen & research but it is a tight spot but no recordings/photos were clearly taken. Yes, i've heard that that end of the hose was a pain to remove. Plus, what is the easiest way to remove that part of the hose? Tools? I rather try to replace it at home than taking it to the shop.

Re: Power Steering High Pressure Line/Hose Help!

Pb blaster that sucker and let it soak. That's one of Hondas less than sturdy bolts. I do not know if that is the bolt you have to remove. But if so....

Service manual will give you torque specs for refastening. Looks like you'll need about a 10mm 3/8" drive crow foot wrench with some extensions if you tackle it from above.

It's doubtful you'll get a torque wrench in there. So remove a couple of fender screws..and get the 'feel' for how much tension you have to apply when re--fastening them...that way you'll know you didn't 'over tighten' the ps connection point.

Re: Power Steering High Pressure Line/Hose Help!

That's the line that goes straight to the power steering pump.

There is (if i recall correctly the size) a 10mm bolt holding a bracket that secures that line to the crossmember. I was able to remove it all from beneath the car, with the exception of that one part of the line going into the rack which was a back and forth deal, be prepared for some spilled fluid.

Re: Power Steering High Pressure Line/Hose Help!

My ps pressure line is pretty crusty, I thought about doing it when my motor was out but at the time I was already putting so much money in the car I decided I would wait till it actually goes. And I know its gonna be a PITA when it does!

Good luck

Re: Power Steering High Pressure Line/Hose Help!

A friend sent me this...

"Machinist Workshop Magazine did a test on penetrating oils. Using nuts and
bolts that they scientifically rusted to a uniform degree by soaking in salt water, they then tested the break-out torque required to loosen the nuts. They treated the nuts with a variety of penetrants and measured the torque required to loosen them.

This is what they came up with:
Nothing: 516 lbs
WD-40: 238 lbs;
PB Blaster: 214 lbs;
Liquid Wrench: 127 lbs,
Kano Kroil: 106 lbs
(ATF)/Acetone mix (50/50): 50 lbs."

Ima try it soon.

Re: Power Steering High Pressure Line/Hose Help!

Apparently, i couldn't take off that bolt. Just not enough space to apply enough pressure because it was super tight. I used a 14mm flare nut wrench, locking/gripping pliers and adjustable wrench. While using those tools, i sorta twisted the edges while applying too much pressure. I tried using wd40 but wasn't that effective. Also, a question, the original PS pressure hose had an opening (look at attachment with red circle) where you can connect it to a electrical wire but the new one doesnt. I'm not sure how that works since it has an opening which seems to have a purpose to connect into something...

Re: Power Steering High Pressure Line/Hose Help!

You need that opening to swap over the sensor for the power steering
