Default Changing WRX clutch and power steering hose question

My question is:

Is the power steering hose or hoses removed in the clutch replacement process?

I just got my WRX back from having the clutch replaced for shudder. One day later, my power steering fluid has leaked out and I can't drive the car.

My power steering hoses came loose a few months after I bought it in July 2002 and the dealer tightened them back up and they have not leaked since. I have asked them to check the tightness each time I have taken it in for servicing, except this time.

I am just wondering if they were removed and not put back on tight enough. It doesn't really matter because the car is still under 36,000 miles. But, it would be interesting that they just worked on the clutch and now my power steering is gone, may be just a coincidence.

Thanks, Ken

"Yo, Ken

No, you don't have to do anything with the power steering hoses when a clutch is changed out.

Or so says the dealer service, so hope this helps."

I had the car towed to the dealer and they are going to replace the power steering hoses. Seems like due to the manner in which they are made, they can't be over-tightened, or something. These may have been.

Perhaps at the factory, because my first loss of fluid was when the car was real new and the same dealer bleed the system and tightened up the hoses. So who knows why they need replacing now, but glad they are doing it.
