The HP PAS line from the pump to the box has a weep at the crimped joint, its also very rusty. Clearly i should be looking to replace it.
When looking on LRCat:
It suggests ANR3855 for my early car.
However ANR3855 is dealer only and discontinued.
There are two other part numbers listed, for later chassis numbers, QEP104660 and QEP105440.
So i guess my question is, how similar are these later hoses, and will i be able to use one on my early car?
I imagine the box end is the same, the steering box didnt change AFAIK. I also wonder about the interim part... the 105440 part is for '99 onwards cars, which is presumably thor and potentially had potentially different PAS pump placement, but the 104660 part appears to be GEMS age and went from '97 to '98
Was there a GEMS steering pump change around there that means the 104660 hose wont fit my older pump?
