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.
