Noobie questions re PS hoses

How do I remove the pressure switch on the power steering line?

Tips on R&R both lines?

95 Caprice wagon.

Thanks

Replied to your other thread. It just unscrews from the hose. He underside of the switch will have hex sides for a wrench.

Edit - found this thread which may help....

Hey thanks! That gives me a lot more confidence about this job. I printed out the entire thread, and I had never heard of those grip-tite sockets. My PS fittings on the gear box look like yours, and I haven't even put a wrench on them!

replace front seal or replace pump?

Investigating my power steering pump showed me that the front seal has been leaking for some time. In the FSM it shows using a chisel to cut the old seal, and using some special tool to install the new one.

I'm about to order parts and wonder if I should do the front seal or just get a new pump, although at the moment can't remember how much a replacement is. I'm pretty sure the pump is original. The leak isn't catastrophic but if I'm replacing hoses anyway, it would be stupid to ignore this leak.

BTW I'm still going to try a patch, but ordering everything to do it right...
