Default burnt hole in PS line. need help.

i have an UR uppipe with tial 38, and evidently one of the PS lines was leaning against the flange and melted a hole in it.

it is the outermost line, closest to the firewall.
the one that runs from the top of the pump to the underside of the car and connects to a hard line.

how do i go about replacing this line as it seems the rubber line crimps directly onto the hard lines.
do i have to replace the whole setup from the pump to the underside of the car?

hoping to find some help since it's friday night and the dealer won't be open til monday.

thanks

Don't drive it. I'd just order a new if possible and time willing.

Which line is it? Check this link here on pg 6.

Eew. That's not a typical leaky line. Ya just cooked it huh. You could cut the line and slap on some AN fittings and use ss line. Any domestic shops near you?

do you mean cut the hard line?
or cut the hose?

it's funny that the inner line has a protective piece of metal type loom over it, but the one that runs nearer the downpipe is open.

i'll get under it tomorrow i guess

I burned a hole in that line with my UR ewg uppipe. I had it replaced at the dealer (mistake $$$$). I had them slip a covering over it that has held up for now. I'm gonne get some thermotec wire insolators to cover the wires better and find some way to swing them out of the way.

Man fou you ewg guys, checking your line clearance seems rather important. The extra insulation sounds like a good idea too.

When I installed the ewg the line was out of the way. After a while it shifted over. It only blew after a 15-20min hard run where I was pretty much boosting the whole time...

They had to replace the whole thing. When you get the new part, call the dealer and have them look it up by VIN. They changed the design a little a few years and they don't all fit the same.
