    Thanks, but I decided I will go with Cobalt when they become available again.

    Removed the compressor to access the nut on the power steering hose. I bought a set of flare wrenches to facilitate the removal of that 17mm because I was rounding it off with the box end wrench. It's out and I'm waiting for the pressure hose to arrive either today or tomorrow.

    Any project that requires buying more tools is a good project.

    It has begun. I'm still buying tools, but the right tools will save a lot of aggravation and damage.

    Buying a miata will do that to you.

    Good news, the hose has arrived. I wasn't expecting it to arrive so early. It's time to put everything back together once I have something to eat. I'm famished.

    Bought a 6mm & 1/4" ratcheting wrench for my metric and SAE for my sets which did not include them.

    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    After replacing the high pressure hose and putting everything back together I bled the power steering pump. Lowered the car and started it up. I felt the difference immediately as I backed out of the driveway; I could once again effortless turn the wheels with grace. I am so glad to have power steering again.

    Always buy good proven parts or you will be doing the job more than once unless you are a masochist. We have a few in this club.
