Default Replacing power steering hoses on 2004 rtv 900

Hi all need some help. My power steering hoses on my 04 rtv 900 are leaking and need to be replaced so I ordered new ones from dealer and one is wrong. In the meantime my farm "mechanic" starting attempting to take off the old ones and said he needed to remove the hard top and the dash. I do not think he needs to do that and he says he cannot remove the dash panel, cant figure out how to do that. Any suggestions on replacing the power steering hoses easily?
Thanks for any input

Do you still have your owners manual? On page G-33 of a later model manual, it shows the power steering hoses going up under the dash to the base of the steering wheel. Remind him that the power steering oil is Kubota sudt for the RTVs.
If you go to the messicks eqpt site, you can enter your information and get a diagram of areas you need to access. Page G-33 though has a diagram in my book . bordercollie

edit: added pics for reference. please delete if not allowed.

i haven't done this but just guessing that it might be easier to remove the steering unit as a whole and then attach the hoses and reattach the whole unit.
