My car has a severe power steering leak. the source of the leak seems to be coming from the power steering cooling pipe behind the front bumper, I'm guessing it has corroded. Honda want £180 for the part but there's an aftermarket part on Ebay for £48.

Is it worth shelling out the extra for the genuine part or would I be ok with an aftermarket one?

Thanks
