The power steering hoses are attached to the rack via the metal connections on the passenger side shown in the attached picture. If I need to disconnect these 2 hoses from the rack, which fitting/nut do I need to put a wrench on and turn while holding the other one? Do I turn 1 (red arrow) while holding 2 (green arrow), or vice versa? Is there an O-ring in there? OpposedForces shows an O-ring but no part #.

Turn the nut with the red arrow. The larger nut is simply there to hold onto with another wrench to prevent the line from twisting. Be sure to use 2 wrenches to not cause damage or distortion of the line. You will also find this at the pump end as well.


The o-ring will be on the flare of the make end. As long as you don't lose the o-ring you will be fine.
