Is it possible to repair a Power Steering Pipe?

The car is a 1997 R reg Diesel Passat.

The reason i ask is to buy a new one from a main Dealer costs over £300.

Is this high or low-pressure pipe? if it's high pressure you could try and get it refabricated by a hydraulics company or a local specialist, all the parts required a freely available from motor factors. 

Some like this perhaps (just a random google link) https://www.tridenthydraulics.co.uk/other/power-steering-hoses.html

If it's low pressure it will be simple to get a generic hose made up, it won't have all curves in the right place but will do the job. 

Other options, eBay or car breakers.
