While going over my Boxster prior to MOT I was checking the hard brake lines and whilst they were all good I noticed that the ferrule on one of the power steering pipes had split, on further investigation (levering the split with a screwdriver!) it was apparent the hose was being held in place by just a couple of the crimps. the ferrule is/was aluminium and had suffered corrosion and thus split.
My question is will decent correctly sized hose clips be ok on a PAS hose. I intend to fit two in the positions of the crimps the ferrule had i.e. one either side of the 'bead' of the hard pipe the hose attached to. This is the low pressure return hose.
Its where the hose that goes to the rack (2) joins the hard pipe back towards the PAS pump, diagram is for LHD but you get the idea.
