Default Power Steering Leaking

I have a 2002 Subaru Forester. Lately, my car has been leaking steering fluid beneath the reservoir. If anyone with has any idea please let me know what I should do!

Default Power Steering Leaks

Try adding Lucas power steering stop leak.
Doesn`t fix completely but may buy you time by reducing/stopping leak for long enough to repair at a more convenient time.

Is it the reservoir itself that's leaking or just a bad line?
