Found my leak - what now?


nothing says getting ready for the new year better than laying under your car, looking for a leak in your power steering

I finally found it:

It's slowly leaking out of the rubber side of the PS pressure line
Looks like the part no is 986 347 443 13

The question is if anyone has done this already and if this is a DIY or should I give it to my trusted mechanic?

I still wave at Boxsters, but they no longer wave back :-(

I can not tell if it is the "O" ring on the male or the "Swedge " (crimp) from the photo. If it is the "O" ring leaking, replace it. Looks like .....something coming from the "O " ring side also.
