I replaced the power steering pump on my 2007 but it is leaking where the high pressure line threads into the pump and I cannot figure out what's wrong so I am asking for help. The leak is where the tube goes into the flare nut. I measured from the base of the flare nut, where the nylon o-ring sits in its groove, to the tip of the high pressure line, and it's a half inch (first photo). Then I measured the depth of the well in the pump using a piece of wire, and it's 3/4 inch. So the tip of the high pressure line does not bottom out in the well. I'm guessing that there is an internal o-ring on the inside of the flare nut that would seal the pipe to the nut. Mine has some up and down wiggle of the flare nut moving on the pipe, and that wiggle is where the leak is. Can someone tell me, do I need to replace the high pressure line? Thank you very much.
