Okay folks....prime example why it's not good to post pictures from storage sites like photobucket. THEY EXPIRE EVENTUALLY! Check out the first post and all the pictures are GONE! Is there any way to resurrect them?
^^^^ Took the words right out of my mouth....

OP, can you reload the pics, I plan on doing this very soon....
Much appreciated....

I just replaced my high pressure power steering hose on my 2007 MO, (front wheel drive, 76K miles). I originally got a quote from my local dealership for $515 ($200 part fee, $155 labor, plus shop fees and tax). Other garage quotes were similar. I like you was therefor going to take this repair on myself. I found the part on ebay for $110 being sold by a Nissan Dealership in AZ (
http://myworld.ebay.com/peoriaparts/?_trksid=p4340.l2559 ). This hose DOES NOT INCLUDE the sensor, which I didn't need anyway and adds approx. $100 to the part cost.

I called my local dealer back and asked them if they could likewsie order the hose without the sensor and much to my surprise they said "NO". They said they could only get the $200 hose with the sensor. I then called a local independent certified NISSAN service center in my area. They too said the part was $200; however, I told them about the NISSAN dealership in AZ being able to sell the part for $110 w/o the sensor. They checked into this, called me back, and said that they could likewise get the part for $110 (genuine NISSAN Part). Their labor was $145, so I ended-up having them get the part and do the work. Total repair bill was $255 plus tax!. I saved almost $300 in repair cost by forcing the local shops to quote the hose without the sensor.

I went ahead and purchased the line from the parts shop at the Nissan dealership. Cost about 180$ for the hose, the gasket, and the fluid. Took me about 3 hours with not the best tools and working environment. Glad it's fixed and glad my family is safer

I am going to do the PS repair this weekend. Ordered the part from rockauto.com. Part comes as exactly the same as Oreilly's and costs ~45 + shipping. Any advice on removing the wheel well cover without destroying the plastic pins?

Changing out my high pressure hose right now... I'll add my pics to this thread later for all the 2WD owners.
Anyway... I cannot for the life of me, get that damn sensor off of the old hose. It won't budge. I used Seafoam Deep Creep, and let it sit for awhile, and still nothing. Channel locks, plus large crescent wrench (least favorite tool, but considering I dont have a deep socket 24mm...I have to use It.

High Pressure PS Line Which Part Number? Help

Thanks to everyone who has posted how to replace the high pressure power steering line. My wife's 2006 AWD Murano PS Line is leaking - we just moved from TX to CA and I don't know a mechanic whom I trust yet. But having worked on cars "back in the days" I've learned how to fix many things on my wife's car thanks in part to this website.

I am not sure on the part numbers I need with regards to the actual hose because I'm not sure if I need one with a sensor versus one without. When I go under to look, it looks as though I have a sensor in the existing line.

Does this mean I need PN# 49720-CB60C (I believe has the sensor) or can I use PN 49720-CC10C (the newer one without the sensor) or 49720-CC10A ( the older one I believe also without a sensor) - If I get one without a sensor, what do I do about the sensor in the old line (assuming I remove it and it will be dangling there ... thinking it needs to go somewhere).

Which one do I need? Thanks again!

Just get the one without the sensor. Reuse the old one. Look at page 2 of this thread for pix. Part number for awd is different from fwd. The non sensor is cheaper by atleast 100. Read the instructions a few times before doing the job. To make sure you have the tools and parts needed. What year is your MO?

High Pressure PS Line Which Part Number? Help

nitely - Thanks for the help....My wife's Murano is a 2006 AWD.
If I get the one without the sensor, I understand from your feed back I can re-use the old one (makes sense). However in reading about needing to relocate the sensor on other posts, will I need to do the same?

Also do I get 49720-CC10C (the newer one without the sensor) or 49720-CC10A ( the older one I believe also without a sensor)?

Thanks again!!!!

Get the 49720-CC10C if you have the AWD. This is the one with more hard tubing bends compared to the FWD. Yes you have to unscrew the old sensor from the old pressure hose assembly and screw it in the new one. Pix on page 2 of this thread. Here, this should help you......http://www.nicoclub.com/FSM/murano/2006/

You should read the entire thread and then crawl under your MO and get familiar with part you are replacing. That is the only way you can fully picture the job in hand.

could you describe the sound a lil more? you say rubbing sound? but that wouldnt correlate at all with the power steering system...if instead you mean it is more of a whining sound, your power steering pump could be failing, and needs replacement. and if there was a problem after taking it to a shop, they are liable for anything done wrong or messed up when the car was in their possession, you should def take it back and make them fix it, why pay more money for something you didn't do
I am experiencing the similar trouble . I had my power steering hose replaced by the mechanic and now there seems to be a rubbing noise every time I turn the steering to a complete left or right . Anyone know what the issue is ?

Of all of you who replaced the hose, did anyone experience, noise when turning left and right? Rubbing noise? I also had the line replace, however, it makes this noise and is getting hard to turn now.
TOTALSKIIER : Did you manage to troubleshoot the rubbing noise ? I am experiencing the similar trouble with my 2005 MO after carrying out a steering hose replacement . Please advise Thanks

I replaced my power steering hose a couple months ago, via the methods described in this thread. Very helpful. I found that removing the cowl (the plastic cover at the base of the windshield made it much easier to remove the bolt attaching the middle bracket with the heat shield. The cowl only took about 15 minutes to remove, and about 5 minutes to re-install when I was done, Just note that you have to take off the windshield wipers to get it off, but it's pretty easy. Thanks again.

I did this a few months ago also based on the directions on this forum. I dont see how you could possibly get the top bolt out without removing the cowl. I also had trouble getting the sensor connector off. Only because of where it is located. I am happy to report that the hose replacement did fix my problem. I am saving the old hose in case Nissan ever issues a recall. I agree with others that this is a safety issue. I still have to replace the grill due to the plastic chrome coming off and figure out where all the oil goes. What a lemon!
