GT V6 power steering pipe leak - near cooler
So I have an annoying power steering fluid leak on my GT V6. Its leaking at the end of the pipe that connects to the cooler under the left headlight. Its not a massive leak but enough for the reservoir to go below min after a few days. Some days its worse than others.
Today I took the under tray off to have a better look and found the pipe leaking around the stupid plastic push on clip thing that is a poor imitation of a decent fixing.
It looks like the pipe is too short to cut this part off and put some jubilee clips on it instead so now i'm a bit stuck. I don't really want to replace the pipe because the rest of it looks OK and it looks like a pain to get to as its the one that goes down behind the rack. Is there an o-ring or something in these connectors that could be replaced, or maybe some oil resistant silicon to help the seal?
Any ideas welcome.
