Leaking power steering pipe

Just discovered a leak from the power steering pipe that runs across the front of the car below the radiator. It would appear to be coming from where the pipe is clamped to the chassis. (Had something similar with my 156 - salt corrosion where the pipe was wrapped in rubber).

Anyone know if parts are still available and whether it's a major job? (is it a continuous pipe from the reservoir right round the engine to the rack or is it made up of several jointed pieces)

If it's a metal section drain and dry the affected area of any oil then repair the hole with chemical metal. The stuff is good for about 5,000psi so it'll hold. that's how I fixed my wife's power steering and it's still good and solid a year down the line.
