Help to identify this leak

Recommended Posts

 

I noticed this while under the car.

You can see it is routed from one of the belts if this helps to identify it.

I've looked through a manual I've got, but still can't identify what this component is. It also has hoses running to it.IMG_20200624_142417.thumb.jpg.1a05872b6fd570434d1b4e07b5e8110a.jpg

 

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks for your comment

At the time, after fiddling with my suspension, I wondered whether the misalignment could cause such issues with the power steering pump. It may well have been there since purchase, but what are your thoughts on that?

I also noticed a spot on my steering rack. Anything to be concerned about?

Looking how wet that pump is, it's past its best, also looking at the colour of the fluid it has had it as well (should be a dark cherry red) if it was mine - drain the system, new pump and flush/change the fluid through a few times

the rack doesn't look horrible clean it up with some degreaser and keep an eye on it
