New POwer Steering Hose $410Au is this correct?
Pipe came out form the connection just next to the right wheel under the guard.
they say they have to replace the whole pipe.
$410 just for the new hose is pricey.
Is there any internet sites that a person camn check alfa parts themselves to make sure they are not getting ruipped off. I have search to no avail... help please..

Re: New POwer Steering Hose $410Au is this correct?

I had the power steering pipes changed last year and I paid about 150 - 160 EUR for the pipes including fitting. At present exchange rate it makes it $275Au. But Alfa parts in Australia might be much more expensive... I have no idea about possible import taxes or other duties you might have as well.....

Just be sure you get the new, black plastic pipes, not the old silver aluminium ones. They had sharp edges, corroded and due to vibration cut the attached hoses and developed leaks...

Had mine replaced a few weeks ago, total price came to €448 at a main dealers. This did include replacing the 2 front drop links as well though so you could knock off €80 or so from that price plus maybe another ~€70 for labour bringing the price to around €300 which is reasonable. Price of the pipe was €115.86 + VAT.
Google for fiat eper and you'll find a few sites hosting the eper catalogue which has the prices for the parts.
