2000 Chrysler Cirrus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 159000 miles
I am in the midst of replacing my rack & pinion and need to disconnect the power steering fluid input and output lines from the rack (steering gear, as Haynes calls it). The topmost one will not budge. I am at an impass because I fear that if I try to much longer I will round out the fastner and really be screwed. For this same reason, I am wary to test to see if it might for some reason be reverse-threaded. The first line came off easily. Does anyone know if this fastner for the power steering fluid line is reverse-threaded or have any suggestions on what I should try next? Much thanks for your help.
EDIT: The line is in a tight spot and seems to be a special size, but I have managed to try the following: small vice-grips, small crescent wrench, 11/16" and 3/4" stubby wrenches.
have the same problem?
