Replacing The High Pressure Power Steering Hose On An Alfa 159/Brera 2.2 JTS

When topping up the power steering oil be sure to use the same colour oil as what came out (either red or green). This 'How to' is based on the Brera and is for right hand drive models, the hose also fits the 159 1.9 JTS.

You can BOOK your car in or just look for a QUOTE for replacing the power steering hose for the 159 or Brera

Unclip the x2 top clips securing the power steering hose. There's also a clamp at the back which comes with the new hose so undo undo the 10mm bolt.

Unscrew the cap to the power steering reservoir.

Using a large syringe draw out the oil in the tank (this is only to prevent excess leakage when disconnecting the hose).

Undo the 17mm hose connector to the power steering pump.

We cable tie a latex glove over the end of the hose for convenience.

Undo the 6mm allen bolts, T27 (Torx) and Phillips screws to the undertray then remove the undertray.

From the front of the car, if you look underneath past the engine to the right side (passenger) you'll see a white clamp on the hose secured by a 10mm bolt.

If you step past the sub frame and look back at the top left side (passenger) in front of the anti roll bar, you'll be able to access this bolt.

Look to the right (drivers) side and undo the top 19mm banjo bolt to the steering rack. Push the end of the hose so that it's in front of the steering column.

From the top of the engine bay, pass the neck of the hose through the small gap between the bulk head and the exhaust manifold. This will give you more room.... pull the hose out. Replace the new hose using new cooper seals for the banjo bolt.

The type of power steering oil for your vehicle is listed on a sticker on the under side of the engine bonnet.

Top up the steering reservoir and screw on the cap.

Start the engine and turn the steering wheel half a dozen times to release any trapped air in the system.

Check the oil level and top up if necessary.
