i did the PS hoses on my 88 90q too - there is an access hatch in the
drivers footwell which gives you a TINY little window to get a wrench
[or wrench-like contraption] onto the banjo bolts.

still a wicked PITA mind, but do able. i do remember it being a
slooooooooow job.

fwiw, i had the hoses rebuilt by a local radiator shop for about 150$
for all the hoses [4?], which was WAY cheaper than anywhere i could
find oem hoses online. i plan to do the same with the weepy a4 hoses.

provided i didnt ruin my transmission..

nobody ever listened to me until they didn't know who i was.
