Power steering hose


I have a 2004 Tacoma 3.4L 4x4. I have a leak in the rack return hose that goes back to the pump. This hose is about 10" long and just has a squeeze type clamp on both ends. It starts at the steel nipple that is where the gear is. My problem is, how in the world do you get to the clamps? There is just enough room to get a couple of fingers to it from underneath the vehicle let alone a pair of pliers. I hope I don't have to take the whole rack and pinion off and the whole steel line going back to the pump to get this hose off. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

If I recall correctly, you should be able to unbolt the return hose from the steering rack and then you should have easy access to the clamp. If yer not gonna reuse the old hose, you could just (after plugging the reservoir) cut the hose off the end and pull the hose clamp off the exposed end.
