Power Steering High Pressure hose Replacement Issue

Post by VolvoChef » Fri Oct 25, 2019 5:15 pm

Hello, I need to replace a leaking power steering line (high pressure supply hose) and have it in position at the rack fitting but can't for the life of me figure out how to get a tool in there to turn the nut. I was trying a crowsfoot wrench but still super tight and the fitting appears to be at a bad angle.

It seems like I'm missing something. Do I need to drop the sub-frame a little for clearance or loosen the sway bar?

If anyone has a shop manual with instructions I'd surely be grateful.
