Default Hose bolted to bottom of engine

Here is a hose that runs front to back under the engine that is bolted in two places.

The rubber bushings that protect the hose from the clamps are breaking apart and one has slipped out of the clamp. I'd like to replaces these, but don't know what to search for.

They are the power steering hoses. Are they leaking? If not, leave them alone..they are a pain to change, specially trying to reach under the power steering pump

If it is the power steering pressure hose, there was a recall for the 2001-2004 and convertible 2005 models, all with automatic transmission. The hose could rub on the transaxle differential cover, cause a leak and fire. If you bought the car used, make sure the PT was taken in for a free check of that hose.

I called Chrysler and they said all the recall items were taken care of in 2002 and 2004 for this car.
Maybe I"ll call a Chrysler dealer and see if they will do the recall a 2nd time.

Thanks.

Just maybe if you tell them that the hose that was under recall, even though it was inspected, has come out of the clamp, and may rub against the transaxle which is why the recall was put out in the first place, they might look at it a second time for free.
