Re: PS hose

> Has anyone had to buy the PS hose that goes from the pump to the rack lately?

I can tell you where not to buy one!  I bought one for my (now her) '84 5kS
from NAPA about a year ago when I replaced every other component in the
hydraulic system.  The hose was made by Gates.  It took a year to turn into
what a friend called a "sprinkler system."  She had it replaced yesterday,
presumably with an Audi hose...  Every other thing onthat car made by Gates has
held up wonderfully, but I guess the hydraulic pressure was too much for the
Gates hose.
