1999 Toyota Avalon XL 3.0 - Power Steering Leak, Part identification

My Mothers car has a power steering leak. She is constantly losing power steering fluid. I was able to trace the leak using a UV dye to the part pictured but I don’t know which power steering hose this is.

That is the “high pressure” power steering hose, running between the pump and the rack.

Thank you very much.

You are very welcome.

fyi, turning the steering wheel all the way to where it won’t turn any more (i.e. it hits the steering stop), especially if it is firmly held in that position while doing a steering maneuver, like parallel parking, over time that can tend to cause this problem.
