Power steering hose blow out


On the way back for a recent engine change I was alarmed to suddenly lose the power steering on a roundabout.


The high pressure hose connecter from the base of the steering pump had blown a large hole and sprayed hydraulic fluid everywhere.


Fortunately I was able to get a replacement hose made up by Designation Ltd who made up a new one in minutes.


After fitting the replacement hose I topped up the reservoir with 3.1 litres of hydraulic fluid and the job was done.



Here is a picture of the damaged hose and the replacement.
