    Power steering leak...

    Dealing with a 1998 Formula Firebird M6 here...

    Okay... power steering is leaking from the hose that has a metal pipe on either end and a rubber hose in the middle. It hooks into the left side of the power steering pump (if you are looking at it from the front of the car) and then drops down and connects somewhere near the bottom of the engine bay (haven't had the chance to jack her up yet and look).

    Does the rubber section of hose remove easily from the metal pipe on either end, or is it some fancy crimp job in which case I'll need to order a whole new hose? I can't quite see the connection where the metal pipe and rubber hose come together (haven't really looked hard enough yet), but I figured I'd ask and find out if I am in for a load of work, or just a simple fix.

    Any input is appreciated.
