CAUTION
The quick connect fitting may disengage if not fully assembled, if the snapring is missing or if the tube nut or hose end is not machined properly. If the fitting disengages replace the hose assembly. The fitting is fully engaged when the hose will not pull out. To test for positive engagement the system should be properly filled, the engine started and the steering wheel turned from stop to stop.
