    Power Steering Hose Recall on 99 Eldorado ? Was there a problem?

    My recently purchased 99 ETC has a noise when steered hard right at a certain point. It sounds like a grind or rub to me, but my mechanic describes it as a hose pressure noise. It implies that there may have been a recall originally on that hose, but says he has no idea if mine was replaced ever or if that is actually the problem.

    Any thoughts or experience on this topic? The hose replacement cost is over $400, but I am not going to let him order one unless we can diagnose for sure that that is the noise and or there is a real problem with it making that sound occassionally. It only happens when I am turning out of a parking place or the like and turning the wheel far enough to the right to have the car make the sound at the same spot most times.

    ----------

    I found the answer elsewhere on this site. Here it is in case anyone wants to know:

    TSB#02-02-32-003B - (Mar 25, 2003)

    Steering Moan/Shudder/Vibration/Noise During Parking Manuevers (Replace Power Steering (Inlet) Hose Assembly)
    Steering Moan/Shudder/Vibration/Noise During Parking Maneuvers (Replace Power Steering Pressure (Inlet) Hose Assembly)
    1997-1999 Cadillac DeVille

    1997-2002 Cadillac Eldorado

    This bulletin is being revised to add an additional model and provide new part and installation information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 02-02-32-003A (Section 02-Steering).

    Condition
    Some customers may comment on a steering vibration, shudder or moan noise during low speed turning/parking maneuvers.

    Cause
    This condition may be due to the steering system frequencies being transmitted through the power steering pressure (inlet) hose assembly.

    Correction
    An improved power steering pressure (inlet) hose assembly is now available from GMSPO. Replace the existing steering pressure hose with a new steering pressure (inlet) hose assembly, P/N 25755411. Refer to the following power steering hose replacement procedure.

    The hose replacement cost is over $400

    WHAT?

    ACDELCO Part # 36365310 - $44.79 - pressure hose - OLD STYLE

    or the "improved" GATES Part # 365544 - $64.79 -

    AND -

    ACDELCO Part # 36370780 - $16.96 - return hose -

    oh - the above prices are from RockAuto.com - plus shipping -


    ------------------------------------------

    did a little more research for you -

    --------------------------------------

    here is a pic of the "old" style hose -
    note only one section of hose -


    --------------------------
    here is the "improved" style -
    note there are two sections of hose -



    -------------------
    so it should be easy to discover which style hose you have -

    -----------------------------
    i see where the $400 price tag come from -
    but the labor still seems high at $200 -

    the GM replacement hose is almost $200 -

    if you do change hoses - get the GATES hose -
    same thing - $65 - with free shipping from amazon.com -

    I am a bit confused like usual. Does the the "improved" GATES Part # 365544 - $64.79 consist of the whole thing shown in the picture and that is all I need? Or do I buy several pieces and put them together to look like the picture? When I look up that part number on Gates or Amazon website, they show the whole thing as one item. So how many individual items do I need to order, one or more? Thanks.

    YEP - I know it just sounds too good to be true -

    that is the high pressure PS hose assembly -
    it's all one unit - already assembled - as pictured -

    So how many individual items do I need to order, one or more?

    the only other hose you might need is the RETURN HOSE -
    but it is the LOW pressure side - and is probably still OK -
