The pilot advised that the problem was with the 'green' hydraulic system and that the operation of the flaps, slats and gear was not effected. The nose gear steering would be unservicable.

Company maintenance replaced the o-ring on the hydraulic pressure line at the strut box on the left engine and the aircraft was returned to service.
