1991 Ford Tempo GL

I have a 91 ford tempo GL 4 cylinder the power steering high pressure hose is leaking the one to the gear. I need some suggestions on how to get to the hose at the gear i can touch it but can not get a wrench on it to take it off .

ok i don't work on fords much but my labor guide is saying close to 2 hours to change that hose.....looks like your going to need someone with some good tools...sounds like your going to need a crowsfoot wrench to get to it

you have to remove the four bolts that hold the steering rack to the body,remove the 10mm bolt that holds the steering shaft to the rack,go inside the car and pull the shaft up,pivot the rack so you can get a wrench on the nut,you may also have to remove the return line to get at it,if its stuck you can cut the line off at the nut and use a socket to it out,its not fun and very messy,
