So I've traced a power steering fluid leak on my 2.2 jts LHD to the return line from the rack, which goes into a small radiator and then onwards to the pump. It has somehow rusted quite badly and needs to be replaced. I want to have a hose made but I don't have much knowledge on the types of connectors used in cars, so I'm hoping someone here has can identify the types of connectors I've attached below.

There is a coupling at the steering rack for the return line marked with the arrow. It looks like a cylindrical banjo coupling but I'm not sure

And there is this quick release coupling where the line goes to the radiator shown below. Is there a trick to getting this off? I tried pressing the 2 plastic things together and pulling it off but it didn't budge.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Here is the pipe that's rusted

Looks like a standard banjo type connection to me.

the plastic on is just a case of pressing in the white lock tab and pulling pipe off,probably right after being on there years try wiggling while holding lock tab in and pulling on pipe
