I would first wash the area down really good to see exactly where it is leaking from.
It is best to use line wrenches when doing this. But either way if it is coming from the fitting area I would make sure they are tight. If not that may be your problem. If they have to be replaced then it won't be easy but can be done.
Here is the info below and again. Line wrenches are best to use. Sorry the manual doesn't' provide any pics for this operation.
POWER STEERING PRESSURE & RETURN LINES
1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove air cleaner and hot air tube (if equipped). On 2.5L models, disconnect connectors from distributor, ignition coil, radio capacitor, oil switch and move harness. On all models, disconnect connectors from radiator fan and purge valve. Remove fan shroud. Disconnect integrated module harness connector from headlamp harness and place module out of the way.
2. Remove screw at pressure and return line bracket. Remove anti-rattle clip. Disconnect electrical connector on power steering pressure switch at steering gear. Remove pressure line fitting at power steering pump. Loosen clamp and remove return line at pump. Remove return line fitting at steering gear. Remove pressure line fitting at steering gear.
NOTE: Pressure and return fittings have the same thread size. Ensure pressure nut on line is installed in the pressure port, and that check valve is properly oriented. The return fitting is silver colored and longer than the pressure line fitting.
Installation is reverse of removal.
