Default Remove Power Steering Pressure Hose & Leak

Don't have a repair manual yet, but I'm trying to replace reservoir power steering pressure hose that's leaking...have to fill it daily with power steering fluild. Down to the last bolt was having problem removing it, knowing this vehicle is a bit difficult to work with maybe there is more to be removed.

Also ride is leaking by the column on both driver and passenger side besides probably bottom of winshield because under dashboard on both sides leaking too when raining.

Here is the steering components diagram. High pressure hose is 2.

https://www.kiatechinfo.com/data/Pas...G/bpad019a.gif

Should be 3 bolts - 2 on cross member that hold the hose, 1 - attaches hose to steering pump.
and 1 connection - connects pressure hose with non flexible pipe.

Thumbs up

Welcome to the KIA forums. If you want to see an online manual for your vehicle go to www.kiatechinfo.com it is a free site by KIA and you will find the manual in the shop section once you have registered. The site has service bulletins and a lot of other handy info as well.

Hi,
New guy here. Were you able to replace the pressure hose? My wife's is leaking and I have bought the new hose but am having a difficult time un-doing the bottom fitting to get it replaced. Any suggestions?

I had to remove the line from the steering gear. That bottom fitting was seized and would not move. I expect a heck of a time trying to reinstall the line from the steering gear because of all the twists and turns.

Others have well addressed the P/S issues for you. I will the RAIN leaking in at both sides of the windshield. Thou we all have a 2003-2009 Sorento here that is very roughed. I have been to BVI and Tortola to be more so to the point. And driven on thier roads. I can not speak for yours karmaSP in St Croix VI, but I know not all in Tortola were great. And many were down right bad. So I think you have been bounseing about and your windshield has lost it butal strip seal/chalking. Or it's dried out and is brittle. Or it has cracks under the moulding at the body in butal or glass (top or bottom too) where the water is coming in. Also if ever in its life this vech has had a new or used (common in islands) windshield put in, it was done badly. And now it leaks. All of these are what you need to do to address the water leaks and get them fixed once and for all. Again the water leak can be upper or lower windshield area too and run down the pillar to floor inside. So it is not just at the bottom you need to look at.

Default My results, don't damage the line to the steering gear!!

I am returning with an update to help people learn from my mistake.

I have a 2003 Kia Sorento EX with 4WD. The high pressure power steering line from the pump split and was spraying power steering fluid into the engine compartment. I purchased a replacement line from the Kia dealer and attempted to replace the damaged line. The connector at the pump was simple enough and I could see the connector under the car that unioned to the line that went to the steering gear. However, I was absolutely unable to loosen the union under the car. The problem was access to the union and then the fact that it had seized. In hindsight, I should have applied heat to the union and kept working at it.

What I did was look at an online manual that said to remove the high pressure line from the steering gear. I did and I had to really work to get the line out. The problem was, trying to install the new line. I tried for two days to install that new line and it was impossible. I had the car towed to the dealer and they had to remove both axles to install the line. I ended up paying $375.

It would have been more cost effective to had the dealer replace the initial line ... ~approximately $100.

The moral of the story is that if you have the 4WD Sorento and you cannot loosen the coupling under the radiator, take the vehicle to do the dealer and save yourself hassle, frustration, and money!

I know this thread is a little old..... My wife has this issue, however it's not the 4wd model.. Wondering how hard it will be or if all models are difficult to work on. I have a good amount of tools to get the job done and some knowledge on working on cars. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
