Power steering leak

I have a power steering leak. Lot looks like its leaking from the pressure hose? Is this common? How long should it take to swap out? The reason I ask is because I live in a townhouse and do not want to have to deal with the association.

HOA fear is normal a leak in the power steering pressure hose is not. Source a new line to change refill and service 30 minutes to an hour. Have done that in the parking lot at AutoZone.

Ill have to order a hose. Hopefully that's the only part that's leaking :-)

Many places will custom make high pressure hoses/fittings for you while you wait. Around here, you can get them at Tractor Supply, Rep Rents, O'Reilly's, Autozone, etc...

It could just be the o-ring in the coupling. But if it's a little old, might as well get a new one. Just make sure it comes with a new o-ring.

It's a 91 and I have no idea if its ever been changed. I was planning on order the hose from rock auto. I will have to ask if it comes with an o-ring.

I only suggested that because I took it that you were facing a time issue and needed it immediately for some reason.
