No.

Your PS pump is driven by the serp belt so you'd have to take the belt off then you also loose your alternator(bye-bye battery) and waterpump(bye-bye engine).If your that worried have it towed.

That's your high pressure line hose.

The hard part is removing the two bolts behind the driver side headlights. That hose curves around to the powersteering pump.
Such a bad design. It's a tight fit back there.
