147 power steering fluid leak?

my 147 1.6 is in the garage for a leak in a valve in one of the power steering tubes, haven't been quoted on how much this will cost yet and how hard a job it is to replace. Anyone else had this done and know roughly how much it will cost? I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to mechanics!!

I had the PS pipes replaced, those that go to the coil behind the bumper. Not sure if you have the same pipes replaced. I paid about 150 - 200 EUR for parts + work, but labor will be more expensive in the UK....

I don't think there are any valves in the power steering pipes.........the pipes can leak, but without knowing just which pipe is leaking its impossible to comment on cost, really........where is the leak showing itself?
