Default extra access to change power steering hose

Thanks for the advice. I changed the high pressure hose today. Even with Pape's detailed instructions, I had a hard time getting it done. After several days of starting and stopping I finally just cut a third access hole under left foot area. This 3" X 3" access allowed for half turns of wrench as well as eyes on through the original access. Turned 3 hours of banged up hands into a 30 minute swap.

Oh yea-When I did the hi pressure hose it was hours of frustration trying to get it threaded.

Sure glad I changed those hoses on mine. Can't imagine doing that on the side of the road or at a campground. I followed Gardners post and still lost sanity.
