I had a similar problem. In short, the leak can be at the fitting at either end of the line. Pump or Rack and pinion. There is an internal seal that cannot be replaced. You have to purchase a new line and put it in, or have a mechanic install it. The fittings can be tricky, they can not be torqued too tight, according to the manufacturer or they will leak. It can be a bit of a job to do the whole line. You will need stubby wrenches to get at the fitting at the rack. Also some rack and pinions have a check valve (small button type drop in valve in the high pressure port of the rack and pinion. I had a shop put a line in for me and they got it wedged in sideways and ruined my rack. They probably did not know that it was in the port of the rack. It sits in very loosely and must have turned sideways. SO if your leak is from between the nut and the line, THAT seal can not be replaced.
