The procedure for removal and replacement of the oil pipes on the steering gear (rack) is missing in VIDA. These are not the power steering pressure
and return hoses that route power steering fluid to and from the power steering pump/reservoir. These are the metal pipes on the steering gear itself.
Also, a new clip has been implemented into production after
chassis limits listed above to hold the pipes to the steering gear.
The oil pipes can be replaced according to the following instructions. A new clip comes with
the pipes as part of a "pipe kit" (found in VIDA parts catalog).
Remove the steering gear according to VIDA:
-Removing, replacing and installing
-Steering gear, replacement
Seal the intake and exhaust connections from the servo pump with plastic plugs immediately after removal.
