power steering leak

I am getting a drop or two a night. It looks like the hoses may be leaking at the reservoir. I know about the meridian boxes but I don't think it is the box based on the mess above the steering box.

Is there a way to remove the tank and change the hoses to a more durable solution? Or should I just clean up the hoses and replace the hose clamps with stainless ones?

I think Barry mentioned that sometimes the hoses can "weep". Thanks in advance.

Start by replacing the clamps.

Just to be clear, it looks to be leaking from the bottom clamp area. I should snip off the existing clamp and just use a stainless hose clamp. Correct?
