GM Power Steering Pump Leak

I apparently have leakage of hydraulic fluid from the pump or reservoir on my 1987 Cutlass. The lines on the back of the reservoir appear to be dry and not the source. The bottom and lower sides of the reservoir are moist.

Where due these leak from, and does the whole reservoir/pump assembly need to be replaced?

John

The reservoir seals to the pump with a big o ring. Remove pump and fitting that holds on cover then slide off cover and change o ring . the cover just slips back on fairly easy if you oil the o ring.

Will I need to disconnect the hydraulic lines and remove the pump and brackets from the engine to separate the pump and reservoir? Also, will the pulley have to be removed from the pump shaft?

Thanks,

John
