2001 Dodge Dakota - Fluid leak

From what I can detect the power steering
fluid is leaking, dripping down on the rack and
pinion parts … is this from the upper and lower hoses?

Don’t know , can’t see either hose from here .

Might be the hoses, might be the pump. I can’t see it either.

You need to clean the area with aerosol brake cleaner first.After everything is clean,start the car and look for the leak…it should be obvious.
