Power steering pressure hose replacement E53
 
Found the pressure hose weeping on our 3.0 E53 X5. Have a replacement hose and now see Murphy's law is likely in effect to tackle this. Not sure how much I have to tear apart to get at the fittings and hoped someone could provide guidance from experience.



Google and searching this site didn't come up with anything so far.



Any help appreciated.

This guy did an E46 and looks to have the same hose connection locations as on an 3.0 E53. The 4.4 has a different power steering hose set up.

Yeah a Murphy's law project for sure...

Did my power steering hose. It wasn't too bad.

Same. Replaced all of mine. Took some twisting and contorting but got it done. Wasn’t too bad as I remember. 4.8is though. Not sure if same on others.

I scared myself watching the videos... once I found the right wrenches it went pretty easy.



Had to have the wife crawl under and move the hose around so I could get the banjo fitting to start threading using only one hand. Must have dropped the inside washer 6 times before we finally got it. First time for the wife to get under her car :D



Took pics of the process. I'll try and do a write up later this week.

Scare yourself because you thought that you needed to drink a couple of brewski before attacking this job, or to have a potty mouth?

Did you watch the video?

EODguy 03-17-2019 10:48 PM

Yes, but that video wasn't blowout it was one he had found showing the hose replacement. Unless you're saying that was him? :dunno:
