2003 Nissan Sentra Power Steering Rack & High PSI Power Steering Hose Replacement -Fixing it Forward

Added by AutomotiveUploads
The 2003 Nissan Sentra Power Steering Rack & High PSI Power Steering Hose Replacement video is the 3rd video in the Nissan Sentra SE-R repair series. Yes, the video is almost 50min long, but trust me, it took a lot longer than that to do. In fact, this one left my arms cut and sore for days after the repair. As I say in the video however, it's nothing compared to what Jerry Hall, the owner, went through during his time in the service when an airplane fell on him. For more on that, watch this video.

With that said, this is a comprehensive video covering the replacement of the power steering rack and high psi power steering hose in the 2003 Nissan Sentra. I throw in the tie rod ends just for good measure. So if you're looking to see what you might be in for with this job, watch the video.

We still have a few more things to fix on this vehicle before it goes back to Jerry so stay tuned.
