Power steering h pressure hose is leaking on my 94. I loosened the fitting at the box and loosened the banjo bolt, or so I thought. The female part of the banjo is spinning and the male bolt is still tight to the banjo. So it looks like there is some kind of fitting that screws into the pump and the banjo bolt screws into that fitting. The fitting is loose. How do I hold that fitting tight in order to loosen the banjo bolt? The banjo end of the hose will spin till it hits the steering box, but I'm reluctant to put a lot of torque on the banjo bolt with only the metal hose holding it since I'm afraid I'll bugger the metal hose and still not get the banjo bolt out. Any suggestions? It feels like there is a 'nut' behind the banjo but there's not much room to get a wrench on it. I'm guessing it's a 22mm or 7/8' nut like the banjo bolt.
