Use a 14mm crows foot^^ worked wonders!!

I had put in power steering fluid not even looking at the cap. It takes Dextron ATF. I bought some and disconnected the pressure line underneath and the reservoir line down low. Drained, reconnected the lines and refilled. As I was bleeding I noticed some drips on the ground. After wiping and rebleeding, I find a leak coming from a line I never touch



It was leaking from between the line and fitting. I pulled the line off after dropping the crossmember. One of the flares is smashed ??? I thought it was tight, maybe too tight and noticed this when I backed out of the bay.


The line


Good double flare


Smashed flare, see how flat the side edge is instead of having a mm or so side?


I talked to my dude at a Subaru dealership that has a few donor cars and he's going to pull one off another Sti for me. I'm picking it up Tuesday.
