Hydraulic issue on E55 AMG

We got a late arrival to the workshops on Sunday afternoon as the RAC delivered us a 1999 Mercedes E55 AMG with hydraulic issues. Heading up to Birmingham the car suddenly lost it’s hydraulic fluid out of the rear covering

Upon further investigation, the fuel and brake lines are also starting to corrode so now is as good a time as any to replace the pipework underneath.

We also discovered an unexpected power steering leak. Having seen signs of fluid on the belly pan we thought we best remove the cover to find out what the cause could be. Unfortunately it has revealed a leak on the front hose which will need to be addressed as a matter of urgency.
