I've had my '06 GTP almost a year now, and it's had a PS leak since I got it. Have a question.. is there anyway to tell if the pump itself is leaking or if a hose somewhere may be the culprit?

I have a new pump but looks like it's going to be a pain; so I thought I'd ask about the lines, etc. Anywhere in particular to look? What should I look for? Also if it is the pump is there anyway to replace it without removing that motor mount?

Thanks!

Get yourself a can of degreaser. Go to the carwash. Spray as much of it as you can on all steering components and rinse off. For the following few days keep checking all suspect areas and see where it's starts to get moist first. Pumps almost never leak. It's usually the high pressure line or the rack itself near the bellows. If you want to take it one step further, you can put some dye in the PS system and use a UV light.
