Original high pressure hose leaking at the rubber part close to steering pump.. I ordered the new hose but I am having difficulty taking out the end of the old hose which is bolted to steering box near idler arm on driver side. There is no working space because it is hindered by a heat shield and a small sensor box with wire attached to it. Heat shield seemed to be spot welded so only option seems to be to detach this small box or do something else. I will appreciate if I could get any suggestion or help to complete the job. Thanks
