I have a steering leak. Im wondering if anyone can give me an idea where to check for the leak. Ive had a quick look at the hose from the reservoir to the pump and i dont really see any signs of fluid? Is there anywhere is should be looking as ive also noticed that there appears to be a burning smell as well after coming to a standstill occasionally this may have nothing to do with the leak but thought wud mention it!!!

Just go round every connection and check for tightness , you can buy a leak developer spray thats a white chalk like substance when you run the car and theirs a leak it shows up instantly.

They usally leak around the pipe union that comes out of the power steering pump. Need to get under the car really and have a look for wet patches...
