1991 300CE Mystery hose?

A pick up truck with a ball hitch backed into the front of my CE and the ball part of the hitch punched through the grill and caught a black rigid line that makes sort of a loop and then returns to the drivers side of the engine where it connects to some rubber lines. It begins and ends at the same place, it just forms one big loop around the front of the radiator.

I cant seem to find any information on this part, but the insurance adjuster called it a power steering cooling line. I want to order the part online but dont know what it is...any ideas anyone?

No, the hose in question is rigid its entire length and is about a 1/4" diameter. The two ends are parallel to each other and maybe even welded together (like a double barrell shot gun) then they run together side by side toward the front and around the radiator and then split to form a large loop. What fluid goes in one "barrel" comes back out the other "barrel" if that makes any sense...it does appear to be a cooling loop for something...

the power steering cooling line connects to the rubber power steering hose attached by a clip I believe to the sheet metal behind the various pulleys and serp belt on the driver's side of the engine. You can follow the rigid line backwards if you look carefully. Not sure of part number though.

I agree with the adjuster, power steering cooler line.
