    I know it's not a scooter but it burns gasoline so I need to ask a question. Has anyone removed a high pressure hose from the power steering pump? Does it simply pull off on most vehicles? I can't see the hose because it's behind a pulley that I don't want to remove. I think it developed a leak.

    I haven't worked on power steering pumps for many years but because it is "high" pressure it will be some kind of A&N compression fitting or some new dodad that may require a special tool like on fuel systems. The main thing, to answer your question, is it won't just pull off.

    Thanks Tom. I suspected that it wouldn't just pull off.

    Local auto parts store will probably have the tool. I think it is the same one used to remove A/C lines. Plastic or aluminum. Slips inside the collar and releases the line. Pretty sure the newer cars are this way
