    Replacing power steering lines

    Just bought these hoses( https://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/334...EaAnoWEALw_wcB ) from eeuroparts. Cant find a detailed guide online or in the WIS. Has anyone here done these and know how to?

    The WIS doesn't have a detailed how to as it is written for trained mechanics and it expects them to already know the basics and writing out a detailed description for this would take me all day.

    Rack and pinion power steering is a common automotive item and replacing lines is one of the basics. On youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jD6yn9jUzMc this guy shows how to figure out line run and rusty fittings, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGBUv5r9fk0 this guy shows filling the dipstick power steering pump and burping the system, it also gives a link to flushing power steering fluid. Should be everything you need to know, after that it's common sense and making your hands work in the space available.

    It is very difficult job. One of the hard ones on the 2.3. One of my lines failed early on my 08. It was just a random bad part. I thought I could do it. Couldn't. So I took it to a shop that works on Saabs and the guy told me they have done a lot of them over the years and mentioned how hard it is to do for someone who has not done it before.
