Replacing power steering pump resevoir lines

Anyone have or can share a DIY link for replacing the power steering pump resevoir lines? What I am really looking for is how to remove and install new resevoir line that has what looks like a "push/compression" type fitting on one hose that comes from resevoir to
cooler block. Any particular things I need to know?
