Scotty got a question, I have an 07 Buick Lucerne CXL 4.7L V8 142k miles. (I know I know my first mistake was buying a GM) and I have a significant PSF leak coming from what I believe to be the power steering pressure hose coming from the back of the pump down to the area where it connects to the rack and pinion I believe. How much of a bear is that to change? I'm asking because I've got sausage fingers and there's not a lot of room to work in there. It seems like it would be pretty straightforward but then again I had a problem trying to change my wife's 98 Honda Accord power steering hose (because of one consarn 10mm bolt). I don't think it's the boot that's leaking because those are bone dry.

I ended up getting it done and then I sold it. It was because of those terrible chrome gm rims that would flake/corrode. I ended up buying a 2011 Mercury Milan with 85k miles on it for like $8500

it's a job, but if you have crow's feet wrenches it can be done without too much swearing
