Power Steering Issue

I have no power steering, im assuming i mustve put too much fluid in a few weeks ago and today the cap on the power steering fluid reservoir blew off and fluid went everywhere. i know i need a new cap and fluid, but there was also a hose on the side of the resorvoir that came out. i put it back on and added more fluid but it leaked out through the opening that the hose went through. does a gasket need to go here? there isnt one at the moment, and im not sure what i need to do to fix this. Thanks in advance!

You have two hoses,one is pressurized and the other is a return hose to the reservoir.The pressure hose will have flare nut fittings on both ends and the return hose should have a hose clamp at the reservoir nipple.

I just had the same thing. There is a piece of metal that retains the hose in the housing (well not actually the housing, but the fitting that is still there) that disintegrated. I looked everywhere to find that metal piece. It is just not available. The hose looks fine and it is a shame to have to buy a new one because of that one piece, but it is the only way.
