    Is the pic rotated?
    Which is the top?
    What is it attached to? Gearbox?

    LHS or RHS of the car?

    Looking from under the front left side looking up under the car, you can see steering shaft along the right of the picture. Tyre to the right of the frame. The part is directly above the steering box, looks like its connected to the block.

    I'm having a hard time visualising it.

    You say passenger side but then say it's above the steering box.

    Is the pic rotated?

    Are they the oil cooler pipes?

    Ahh, above the LHS of the steering rack. Saying steering box confused me.

    Are they the oil feed lines to the remote oil filter?

    From the workshop manual:

    Two re-inforced flexible hoses, feed and return, are fitted between the filter assembly and the crankcase mounted
    adaptor plate. The hose connections are of the push fit type and sealed with an O ring seal. The filter hose
    connections are secured by a locking plate bolted to the filter body. The sump hose connections are secured to the
    crankcase adaptor with a securing bracket. This bracket is attached with a stud and nut.
