A factory replacement for the high pressure power steering hose costs about $65. It is possible to make a perfectly serviceable replacement by salvaging the two attaching ends of the defective hose. These are threaded into the compression fitting at each end of the hose and can be unscrewed. A little grinding will permit them to be welded to American S.A.E. high pressure fittings which can then be assembled into a replacement hose. A local shop did this for me at the bargain price of $6.
