Hi, I jacked the car up and I could not get to the line at all didn’t even see it. I was wondering if I could I get it if I take off the driver side front tire to get to the line.
Do you

Good morning,

You get the line at the rack from above, not underneath. It is tight but you can get the line off the rack by using an 18mm crows foot socket and a ratchet with an extension.

The other end you get from the drivers side fender well.

I attached a YouTube video for you. It is for a 2007 but it is the same for yours as well.

1. Place a drain pan under the vehicle.
2. Remove the accessory drive belt.
3. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.
4. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
5. The power steering pressure hose is the lower hose at the power steering gear. Remove the power steering pressure hose from the power steering gear.
6. Remove the power steering pressure hose from the power steering pump.
7. Remove the power steering pressure hose from the clamps on the power steering gear.
8. Remove the power steering pressure hose-from the vehicle.

No, it is not under the fender at all. That is just showing the access to the bottom of the pump is easier through the wheel well than from the top.

I get it from the top. It is tight getting down there under the brake booster but if you cannot, you need to lower the cradle that supports the engine and transmission to get your hands up to the lines.
