1990 Olds Silhouette 3.1 APV (aka Lumina APV, Transport)
The high pressure hose needs to be replaced and I'm having the
devil of a time trying to access the fitting on the rack and pinion.
Too far down to be accessed from above and the cross member
is blocking access from below....
I can barely get a wrench on it, not enough room to swing a wrenc
Chilton's doesn't give any hints. Autozone just gives instructions
for replacing the rack and pinion....which includes lowering the
I'm not familar with subframes.... but can see the bolts
supporting the cross member and anti sway bar.... Do I
need to put a jack under this or place a jack under the
transaxle to lower the subframe...
What's the best way to get this job done.... is there any way
the power steering hose fitting can be accessed normally
or does the sub frame have to be lowered... and how to
lower the subframe safely ??? btw...this is being
done in a driveway on jackstands (several ), so the vehicle
is supported safely but working conditions are not optimal.
Thanks in advance !!
