Exclamation Power Steering hose ?!?!?!

Question about the power steering pressure hose coming from the pump going to the hydra boost. The line is loose/rotates in the fitting on the pump. It doesn't leak, is this how its suppose to be or should it be replaced?

Thanks

Yes it turns because there is an o-ring in there that seals it.

It shouldn't turn very easily at all if that is what you are asking. Those fittings are pressed and they do disengage. I'm not sure how you realized that it turns but that line is pretty exact and tight fitting so if its moving around on you it could be a sign that its about to give which is what happened to me about 2 months ago.
