Need to find part number on power steering pump

Hi all!

My 1995 maxima started leaking power steering fluid. The mechanic at a local garage instructed me to find the part he needs online as his supplier is back-ordered and couldn't get me anything for the next few months. I was told it is a small metal pipe, sllightly over 1 foot long, next to the rack and pinon. He stressed that it is NOT the return nor pressure pipes. Here is a picture of a similar kind of pipe (but it is not exactly the same).

I unfortunately cannot find the right part number on Nissan Usa parts website. Does anyone have some experience with the power steering on those models and could help me?

Your part will be in one of those diagrams. Search the lookup code from the diagram and it will give you the part number. You can put that part number into Google if you're looking for a cheaper price. If the part is discontinued everywhere get it at a junkyard

Its probably an o-ring or hose issue unless someone manually broke the hardline

IF the seals _inside_ the rack are leaking THEN rebuilding/replacing the rack is the only thing that's gonna fix that.

I have had this done - after I had replaced all the weeping 20 year old power steering hoses with new OEM (after which fluid under pressure had no where to go but OUT the leaking seals in the rack).

I'd assume you're for sure the line is actually broken but I would think you'd have a picture of the actual line. One of those hardlines wouldn't break by themselves, I'm picking up a replacement tomorrow for one I twisted to hell and broke. It uses an o-ring as well.

Furthermore if your hardline had broken then I would think it would be a massive leak and you'd be pouring/spraying fluid

Reminds me of an old house and plumbing issues..
