Hello all,
I have a 2004 R170 230 komp and today i was changing the engine mounts. on the RHD car the RHD mount is a PITA to do! i had so much trouble undoing to top bolt and being so close to the steering box i think i damaged one of the pipes and i now have PS fluid all over my driveway. The steering box is covered in fluid.
My question is: how hard would it be to replace the hoses and where can i find them in Sydney? i have tried searching but i had no luck.
Any input is appreciated!

Providing the metal ends on the hose are ok you may be able to have it rebuilt. This is done on trucks and plant all the time. It may offer an alternative to new MB parts

Thanks for the reply, it turned out that one of the bolts that secures one of the hoses to the steering box was loose. I tightened it and now a month later everything is dry :smile:
