Get the car up on ramps. You may need to remove the small jacking plate (4 bolts, 2 nuts).

Just use a short 12mm wrench. There are four lines with nuts exposed. I've posted a pick before.

BE VERY GENTLE. Don't overtighten.
I don't see 4 bolts and 2 nuts. The leak seams to be coming from one of the lines that has a 17mm banjo style nut. This is up on the right side of the car, next to the tranny, and below the Down-pipe where the PS hard line connects to the softer rubber hose leading into the steering rack. The other line right next to it is a 14mm banjo style nut. I assume these are the supply and return lines from the PS pump?

Sure enough it was so loose I could turn it with my fingers. Tightened it down, along with the 14mm nut, and replaced the PS fluid, but I still seem to have a small leak. Is there some sort of gasket I need to replace here? Where are the 4 bolts and 2 nuts that Glenn's talking about?
