    Hi guys I'm changing the power steering hose from the reservoir to the pump and having trouble getting the hose off the pump. Does the nut on top where the hose goes to the pump simply undo or do I have to take the whole pump off to remove the hose. Thanks.

    The one on top where the big hose goes into the pump. Is that the banjo bolt?

    The one you have the arrow pointing at Banjo fitting I think is the correct name for that type of fitting.

    Hi there,I have just rebuilt my pump
    and I removed the alternator to gain access
    with a big assed socket (24mm) I think
    Together with along extension bar and breaker
    She just come off real easy
    Don't forget to use NEW copper washers at the banjo
    Got mine from the nut and bolt place for peanuts.
    Cheers.
