Default Replacing steering pressure hose

I have the 2008 Astra XR with electro-hydraulic steering. When I bought the car in March, the steering was very hard when turning the wheel more than 3/4 turn in either direction and you could hear the pump whining. This was resolved by topping up the steering fluid, but unfortunately the problem came back at the start of July. I had a shop look at it, and they found that the pressure hose between the pump and steering rack is leaking fluid, which is most severe when the wheel is turned to its maximum.

If I go to rock auto for this part, it looks like they only have the pressure hose for the model without electronic power steering, and same story for other sites.

Does anyone know if those parts shown would work for me, and could I use the Sunsong part (no. 3402869) without any trouble instead of the AC Delco part (No. 36352284) which is 3.5x the price?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2008 Astra XR
Default Re: Replacing steering pressure hose

Sorry I cannot help you tonight with a thread search, but I believe that ALL Astras are electro-mechanical regarding hydraulics, without a belt driven hydraulic pump for power steering.

One of the benefits of what is under the hood for all Astra's sold in North America is that they are all the same under the hood, save for plug in heaters where it is cold and maybe just a couple other suggestions.

Search the part number on Amazon and and some of the plug-in search bots like "Honey" in your browser. They will search both Amazon and elsewhere to find the part for less.

Best Luck.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Whatever you need for steering, you can access the coupons from Reecoupons. You can get most amazing discounts on the best products available. It is the most fine site for the products you can look for. You will be amazed with the stuff they had.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Thanks a lot for helping me out on this and I believe honey was a good one and I found another website for discounts and have a good amount of coupons for automotive industry. Thanks once again by the way.
