Comments about CARQUEST Power Steering 16MM Male O-Ring x 3/8" ID Hose:
Prior to installation in my 1999 Dodge Intrepid, I painted the metal tubing with black paint to prevent future rusting (it will now outlive the vehicle). It comes without installation instructions, and online search reveals a lot of work such as removing wiper module, disconnecting inner steering tie rods, steering shaft coupler, lifting steering rack to remove/replace BOTH the high pressure and low pressure lines together. IF you are replacing ONLY THE LOW pressure line, this is not necessary, but it took a couple of hours to separate the two lines, and carefully remove the low pressure line and to re-install. You will need to move wiring harness out of the way near the power brake booster, lift up the radiator reservoir, and separate the two PS lines which are attached together and to the frame rail. I reused the OEM mount screws and secured the high pressure line (not replaced) and the new low pressure line with rubber lined metal 3/8 inch wiring harness clamps. IT IS REALLY TIGHT trying to manipulate the new hose under the rack and up into position to be screwed into the threaded fitting. I used a piece of thin rope tied to the fitting end to pull through and lift into position. If both lines need to be replaced, it might be possible by removing the low pressure first, then the high and reinstalling the high first and then the low pressure line last, BUT I DO NOT KNOW FOR SURE. I installed an inline magnetic PS filter between the old hose from the PS cooler and the end of the new line to remove any contamination from the rusted old line. Use PS fluid, not ATF in 1999 and older intrepid. Be careful when lifting the coolant reservoir, I broke the vac line at the cruise servo because it was brittle (below freezing) when I did the repair.
