Hi Ross, do you subdribe to our company newsletter?? The opening times were advertised in the last issue. We are closed on the public holidays only. Next opening day is this Monday (29th)

But, we donpt sell power steering hoses, they are way expensive to buy and if you take the old one to an Enzed or Perteck agent they can just redo yours for a fraction of the price we would have to charge.

Thanks John, I do subscribe but don't always get them (I think the spam killer gets some of them)...

I will call Enzed on Monday.

Do these have surge suppressors in them?

please assure me that this is a joke?

I know so little about hydraulics (except the basic principles) that I do not not want to ask this question on Monday...

Not that I know of. You are thinkimg about the ride level hoses. The power steering pump is a vane pump so does not produce the pluses of fluid like the ride level pump- does.

Recently I required a special fuel hose for the rear fuel pump area on my W124.

Stealership price for the part was $ 89.00 Plus GST.

Enzed man came, measured hose, made new new one and fitted it for $ 60.00 (plus it's a pretty red colour :D )

Got it repaired today, Enzed would not come out, I had to go to them.

Made a very redneck repair with duct tape and a hose clamp.

They used my metal fittings with new hose - $195 (ouch) :roll: :roll: :roll:

and, I broke my plastic bonnet release toggle thingy that pops out of the grille :evil: :evil: :oops: luckily, I have a spare...

To me that sounds expensive, but still much cheaper than a gengine one. Enzed is a franchise system and i would imagine there is no parity between prices from store to store, my guy i am sure would have been under $100.. :shock:

yes, I also thought it was rather on the very upper end of reasonable, however, left with little choice...
