Well If it is the high pressure hose then where is the leak coming from. Is it where the rubber meets the hard line or where it screws into the pump? If its where the hard line screws into the pump you could just unscrew it and put some teflon tape on the fitting. Otherwise you may just have to get a new hose...the high pressure hose is indeed very high pressure...if it bursts (like mine) you will have fluid all over the engine and the inside of the engine compartment. If its the low pressure hose you can just cut it and clamp it (since that one just carries fluid from your resevoir to the pump). In my case what happened is my bearing in my pump failed and it grenaded. I bought a new pump but I guess I should have replaced the high pressure line too but I didn't and it burst soon after. Good luck.[addsig]
