My car is leaking power steering fluid and it is coming from the driver side of the vehicle. There are drips and small puddles of power steering fluid under the car on the front driver side. The pump (which is on the passenger side) has been replaced within the year so I don't really know what could be causing the leak. Any ideas what could be causing the leak on the driver's side of the car?

Thanks

Hello,

The leak could be from one of the hoses that goes to the power steering rack. It can also leak from the rack.
The best course of action would be to inspect and see if you can detect where the leak is coming from.
You will likely have to raise the vehicle to have a good look.
