Power Steering pipe change.

Hi all, has anyone changed the power steering pipe on their R170 ? The one that goes from the drivers headlamp area to the steering box. There is very little space to work, looks like you have to remove the supercharger piping and the heat shield panel to get to the steering box ?

Can you still buy new R170 parts ? E.g. Said power steering pipe.

i had them renewed recently. but it seemed to me that its not a DIY work. so i went to a local shop for the change. they had to put the car on a lift and remove the shield under the engine for the connections on the steering box.

it cost me 300 USD total for 3 new lines from MB.
