If you are having trouble lining up the pressure hose to the power steering pump, then try removing the bolts that secure the pump to make the pump loose and then put on the hose. Then you can draw the pump back into place with the bolts. If you need further assistance with your power steering system, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
