147 Leaking Power Steering fluid Help!

My wife's 147 1.6 TS has a hose detached behind the power steering reservoir.

It is the 1/4" small hose that goes vertically down from the left rear top flange of the reservoir. The far end is loose and I can't for the life of me see where it's supposed to attach and I've now got fluid seeping out.

Any clues from someone with a healthy 1.6?

Many thanks

I think you are looking at the drain pipe from the breather.
Any fluid from the breather pipe (on the cap) will run into that top flange and down the drain pipe at the back.

surely one end should be attached to the resvoir, low down on it, & the other to the power steering pump or a metal pipe connected tot he PS pump.....can't be that many pipe around there.

I do know thta on 156's these metal pipes tend to break at the corners or at the clamps that keep them in place
