Power Steering leak. UPDATE


My first post and first issue, my discovery has developed a major leak in the power steering. Its leaking were the flexible power steering pipes attach to the rack. Does this section have o rings to seal the joint, I need to try an sort it as all the fluid

leaks out within about 5 mins of the engine running so I can’t even use the car.


So I thought I had sorted this with new o rings from advanced, but tonight when parking the car at least one of them has failed agin. Has anybody had this happen to them so soon after replacement? Is there anything that could cause the system to have high pressure to cause this?? Could really do without another oily mess on the drive.

O-rings are pennies even from main-dealer. The fluid is the expensive part. My local Indy sorted it so quickly he was reluctant to charge me a tenner for his efforts.
