Replaced the coil today, I figured it has served long enough (31 years).
In the process I came across this wet hose that may be power steering related. It sort of disappears around the steering box area.
Can anyone help identify it? It is the one in the background in the first two pictures, with shiny elbow, picture taken with the coil removed from next to the AFM.
Third one is the same before I cleaned the hose and the piping,

Thanks PN187, maybe I'll tighten the clamps first but it is probably futile. Now that it is cleaned up I should probably put a little UV die in the PS fluid to see where exactly it is leaking.
It is definitely a very slow leak as I am not even noticing the PS fluid loss.

Also, the part is 2019970382. Pretty typical wear item for our cars.
At least it wasn't your high pressure line. My teal 190E blew that line a couple yrs ago and it was spraying all over the engine compartment. I think that part was $150 from the MB dealer.

Thanks 355, the flexible part of this hose (that is leaking) is very short, maybe 6-8 inches. I put in some UV dye, let's see if the leaks are from the clamps or somewhere else.
It's good to have the part number, it is rather cheap online. a long section OE part is $30.

Do use clamps that close up to fit all the outer diameter of the hose . Dont use the worm type that pull up uneven and pinching the hose more on one side than the other . I use sergical clamps in a few places .
