POWER STEERING HOSE

2000 Land Rover Discovery 2 • 129,000 miles

I just had my power steering pump replaced & the serpentine belt. Now I'm told that a hose coming off the steering box to the reservoir has a leak in it at the connection. I can't afford to put more in it & I honestly can't help but feel like the "backyard" mechanic is responsible for it. Can the hose be repaired somehow by brazing it with solder or weld, idk? The part is $100 for just this hose! Any suggestions would be great!
Thank you!

Thats the problem with people working on, especially high line cars like yours, systems that are sensitive.
With a new pump comes increased pressure and just maybe he did not do anything wrong but the hose may be another failure. If it was in a shop, they may have picked that up at the time of the pump repair.

I have no idea what it look like so I cannt say about repairing it. The 100 bucks sounds reasonable for the hose as the high pressure hoses are not cheap.

Can you take a picture and post it?

I will try to get a pic & post it. I was also on autozone. Com & saw replacement hoses for fuel, oil & water. They're rubber on the inside & steel on the out & they're compression. What do u think of that?
I understand that $100 doesn't seem like alot of money but to someone who survives on a fixed income as a single mom it is. That's why I have to resolve all other options. I need my car b/c I take care of my disabled family. Too many people depend on me & my vehicle. Sorry, I didn't mean to get on my soapbox, I'm just stressed.
If you can think of anything please let me know.
Thanks for all your time.
