As the title says, how hard is it to change the power steering hoses? I've been quoted 5 hours labor at the garage (not a dealer) - they say the front bumper has to come off.

Looking at it I would have thought that it was possible to get access from underneath with the tray removed...

Anyone done this job themselves? Hoping to save a bit of £££...

Never done it on my 9-5 but have done it on my 9-3. I assume you are referring to the hose that runs from the pump then under the front of the car?

Yes this is a pain and most will quote 3-4 hours labour. It's very difficult to get the long length of pipe that has its various twists and turns in place without taking all the rad, intercooler etc etc out - hence the price.
