Hello, I am hoping someone can help. I have recently brought a 2004 SL55 AMG. It had a leak on the power steering and requires a new hose but Mercedes have ceased making parts for my model ! Anybody else experienced this ? I am currently trying to buy a part from abroad but without much luck, can anyone help please ?

Is there a visible pn on the hose you can google.
Is it a hydraulic hose, these can be readiy made up
by hose places.
Have you tried 3rd party places like ECP.
Have you tries a breakers (dronsfields, prestige) or
is the part AMG specific.

You should be able to have a hydrulic pipe made up here. Burley fluid Hydrulics are worth a try.

There's a good chance the SL500 one is the same, there are a few being broken up, maybe your best bet is a used one for the time being.

Unfortunately most breakers won't be bother as a part like a steering pipe can take longer to remove than the £30 they'd only get for it.
Pity its not an EClass pipe your looking fir I have one of those :rolleyes:

If it was once made, it can be made again. Hydraulic hose consists of two ends and a hose, do you not have any parts they can copy ? Do you know thread size, depth etc ? They are probably standard sizes. Google specialist hydraulic hose makers.

Yep. I had a hose made up by a local hydraulic guy when no parts supplier had stock. . For a 60 year old American car too. Took the bloke 10 minutes and he wasn't going to charge me anything. Not much these specialists can't sort.
