Replacing power steering hoses for an ECHO

I realize this is in for a Yaris but if you know the answer to this question please help!

My 2002 echo with 83,000 miles has corroded power steering hoses. There a middle sections and there are rubber sections. The metal ones are pretty corroded. I painted them with Rust converter and for now all is well.

Should the power steering Hoses fail, What is involved in replacing them? The hoses themselves are like $200, and they look pretty buried in the front end. What has to be removed to get at them to change them?

I have Parkinsonís in years past I would do this work myself. But that is beyond me now. Possibly I could just drain the of fluid out of the power steering, and drive manually but with Parkinsonís I donít know if Iím capable of that.

The hoses are not too had to access once the underbelly pan is removed. Find an aftermarket set for cheaper and swap them in if needed. The potential issue will be if any bolts are corroded.

I swapped my leaking hard trans lines for all soft hoses as the bolts were all completely seized for the original hard lines. However, a power steerig system sees much higher pressures and they run longer so completely removing hard lines isnt really an option
