Elantra 92: How to replace the feeder tubes on the power steering gear box?

Discussion in 'Hyundai Elantra / Lantra' started by Jean Castonguay, Oct 6, 2006.

  1. The shorter feeder tube on the power steering gear box developed a
    pinhole due to corrosion.

    Can these tubes be replaced without removing the gear box from the

    14 mm seems to be the wrench size (a 13 mm wrench does not fit while
    an open-end 14 mm wrench fits a little loosely for my taste...)

    Can these tubes be removed from under the car? The exhaust pipe is in
    the way; should I remove it?

    Thank you very much in advance for any help.

    If you cant find the right wrench for the job do what I do, Use the
    International Canadien Open End Adjustable Metric Cresant Wrench. The Only
    wrench you will ever need in your tool box. Along with the Ronco 1 size fits
    all screwdriver.


    OK GUYZ just let me grab a cup of coffee and Ill be ready for all the snide
    remarks. ( snicker )

    I think it'll round off for sure if you use an adjustable. There are
    special "line wrenches" for this type application that are similar to open
    end wrenches, except that the ends of the open end wrap around a little,
    allowing you to grab the corners of the nut as well.

    As to replacement, I can't offer much advice. I've never had to do it,
    and I don't recall enough about the vehicle's layout to provide advice.
