Inner or outer side of wheel. If inner then probably swivel seal.

A couple of options: Fill with grease instead of oil. Replace seal, and or live with it for now and check oil level frequently like I do.

Front passenger side? Well, your oil pump, filter, cooler and associated cooler lines are all above that general area.

Is the oil dark like from engine? If not, the power steering hoses are around there as well. Those can and will leak.

If it's 'AT' your front tire, like you say, then I agree with Nigel, it's most likely the swivel.

It's 90WT Gear Oil that's in it (or should be) , the same color/stuff that's in your DIFFERENTIAL... If it's got grease in it then it's probably not leaking and it's something else..

Dan the Power steering res is on the PS wing, black cap with a short dip stick on the cap. I would try tracing the fluid back to it's source.
