steering Lines leaking!! any fix available?

Hey guys,

this car has been literally kicking my wallet in the ass since ive purchased it. yesterday I noticed a puddle of oil and it looks like it coming from BOTH power steering lines that go into the rack. One is the pressure hose the other is return line to the cooler. They both have this odd attachment that requires you to turn and press to install and to take them off the rack and have an O ring. I suspect the O Ring is leaking.

part # 32413450551 32413450593

Has anyone successfully fixed these lines without replacing them?? they are not cheap what so ever, and TBH at 100k, something like this is not common.

Any input is appreciated.. is it normal to replace these lines? any potential fix? or am i stuck just replacing them with BMW lines as there is no other option...

Ugh, me too... Im looking for the expansion line, leaking at the quick fitting #32413428381

$260 plus shipping is the best i found on that.

Im hoping the one on my parts car is in good shape, but not holding my breath.

Hi, my line is corroded and the plastic fitting doesn’t seem to want to move. Car is in NY - I see you’re in VT. Did you have any problems?
