My 1995 Bonneville SE came from the factory with a power steering cooler under the car on the right side. It is rusted out. A dealership parts counter salesperson told me the only thing available is the cooler and hose assemble for $170. The part number is 26044069. Autozone claims they can special order a cooler for $20 but cannot provide any details such as size and whether not it will will mount to the factory location. They said a mounting kit is listed separately but they do not have it in stock and it sounded like they were not sure if I needed it for the Bonneville. The cooler is from Compressor Works. It is part number 911009.
The size of the original cooler is 5" by 2 & 1/8" by 1 & 1/8". It is a two pass cooler.
I am looking for advice on where to find the part and information on installing a replacement. I assume I can use hose clamps because it is on the return--low pressure side. I assume I may need to cut the original hose off above the original clamps. I would like to keep the original hoses on the car.
