mine did this in a similar fashion, it will soon dump its contents on the road, under the battery the pipes dive down next to the drive shaft, there is a bracket which clamps the pipes to the body, there are plastic collars bonded onto the alloy pipes apparently the position of this bracket and the pipes means it gets covered in road grime, salt etc. Mine corroded under the plastic collar, not apparent when blowing through the pipe, but it shows up when the pressure is applied by the power steering system.
Its a fiddly job and if you do get pipes, make sure you get the short rubber hoses as well, when I did mine, the rubber hoses on the replacement pipes I got one had a pin hole in it which took ages to trace .
