How do I remove the power steering feed hose on a 2004 Honda Accord V6? I have disconnected everything but there just does not seem to be enough clearance to remove it either from above or below. I have seen some discussion suggesting that jacking up the engine or some such other extreme measure may be necessary.
Do you
have the same problem?

Yes you will need to loosen the engine mounts to sneak the hose out from the car. Here is a video so you can see how a hose is changed with a diagrams below to help you see what to do on your car.

I have a leaking power steering line on a 2006 honda accord V6 LX. Is this a difficult or costly repair? The local dealer is quoting $450. (2.5 hours of labor). Seems a little high to me.

My 2004 honda accord started making a constant loud noise when outside temps go below 50. Mechanic here added fluid to power steering and noise went away for about a week. I see no fluid leaks nor did he. Any ideas. Is it dangerous? It is a four door sedan

If you have to add fluid to p/s then check for a leak, the power steering pump may be bad since it was run without fluid.

Steering problem
2004 Honda Accord 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 104k miles

I got a problem and its getting on my last nerve I dont know what to do. My power steering squeals early in the morning but after a while it goes away. I looked under the hood and noticed the fluid was low. I bought honda fluid filled it. The next day I noticed the fluid wasn't where I filled it at last night. I looked under the car and there was a big puddle of fluid power steering fluiid by the looks of it. I also read another post saying something about the O-Ring is this a possibility because there is oil at the connection from the hose to the power steering pump. Help me email me plz I dont have a computer but I can check my emails on myy phone davefoo05@hotmail. Com thank you!

Hello
Thanks for the donation.

Your power steering hose may have a crack or hole in it that is causing the leak, however, since you stated that there is fluid leaking at the connection to the power steering pump then the O-ring could be faulty or the hose has simply came loose.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for using 2carpros. Com!

Preferably use a flare nut wrench so as to not round the head of the fitting. The pressure hose is the one with threaded fittings on both ends. The fittings unscrew counter-clockwise. Follow the same routing as the old hose. Remove one end first and allow it to drain into a pan. Once drained, remove the other end. Which end is which doesn't matter.

Yes, both sides are loose. There is a bracket under the rear mount. Can't find a diagram of the PS system for removal.

Do you have a basic set of tools, standard size and metric? You use the right size tool and take the fittings loose. It appears to be fairly straight forward.

No you have to replace the hose if it's a return line it may just have clamps on it and available at auto parts.

Hello,

Yep that one goes to the rack, here is a guide and some diagrams (below) to help you get the job done,

You will need to jack up the car first.

This is a straight forward job. Loosen the joint at steering rack to drain the fluid. Remove the joint, remove any portion in between that is holding hose. Remove 2 holding bolt at poser steering pump and manouver the hose out.
