Power steering hose on 2000 Buick LeSabre

Why does it cost so much to replace power steering hose?

Asked by for the 2000 Buick LeSabre
Our book shows about a hour for labor and the hoses prices varies quite a bit from the parts stores ( $ 33 to $55 ) to the dealer ( $ 88 to $ 155 ) The dealer always charges a diagnostic fee on top of the repair, If you know what hose is leaking buy it at a auto parts store and call around and have a independent shop give you an estimate to remove and replace one or both power steering hoses.
