Fluid leak

I noticed on returning to my car yesterday there was a drip mark on the floor. Looking through the mesh of the grill it seemed to be coming from a small radiator mounted in front of the engine (bottom left as you look at it through the grill). Is this the power steering or oil radiator? And is it on a high pressure side? At the moment it seems to only be dripping but my last 32 blew a hose, so I want to avoid THAT lol

cheers...

no definitely ps fluid. i wiped it yesterday and checked again today. i think either the clip is not as tight as it should be or there is a split - can't see any split so it would mean taking it off to check....

anyone have the hose that runs from the bottom of the power steering radiator to the first aluminium connection? it's a double curve section only about 6" long? mine is leaking and i think it may be split but i can't tell without taking it off.

All sorted though the 350GT Facebook page - bought a complete pipe system and radiator, so I now have spares in case the rad ever goes!
