    Kimbo,
    What type of car is it?
    Is the leak form the rack or the pump area?
    I ask because on both the 505 wagons we've owned, we had the odd p/s fluid leak.
    A cheap fix, is to drain ALL the fluid out, and replace it with Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak.

    This isn't a paid ad either.. it does work exactly how they specify. It will stop the leaks. I also found it quiets noisy racks and pumps too. Buy the 1 litre bottle, most Repco stores stock it.

    If its Pug 505 /604 seals you are after, they seem to be special as they are very skinny (ie: not wide). 10 years ago (at least) I tried at my usual Bearing / Seal places & they didnt have them then - but may have now.

    You can get seal kits from places like EAI & they are actually not too expensive.
    There a lots of posts about doing this, check the archives before you dive in, as it may be something differnt (on 505s )
    So many projects - so little time.

    You should post this in the Citroen forum. Alan or Shane are more than likely to have a fix for it.
