Its the cooler for the power steering you have you have damaged, or one of the lines to/from it. It mounts to the front bottom corner of the radiator, and is very accessable to a concrete block.

Well, your radiator doesnt have power steering fluid in it!
if its blue or green, its probably antifreeze from a cracked radiator.
if its red, it could be TQF or what ever audi uses.
Has the steering failed?
Is it still leaking?
Either way, its the garage you need to call for a fix!

Fluid is leaking out the front of the power steering unit 1997 A4 Audi can it be repaired or do i have to replace?


Most likely you can get a seal kit from the dealer. It is most likely a front shaft seal. This is a fairly easy repair to do if you are somewhat handy.

1997 audi a4 quattro power steering leak


Usually you can see if the pump is leaking. Most times it's a hose, or in your case, I'd look real close at the rack and pinion unit that's mounted in a hard to see spot under the car. It can be leaking into the rubber boots that are on both ends of the unit, then slowly leaking out while you are driving. I would bet this is the problem as the noise you are describing happens when the system has air in it, and as you work it back and forth, it purges the air.

Do you mean hard to steer your steering wheel?
If you have a noise when you are turning your steering wheel, you may have low power steering fluid. Add power steering fluid into your power steering fluid reservoir to the level required (check with your manual book). Make sure you get the right power steering fluid for Audi A4. Hope it will help

1996 Audi A4. On a very cold morning the power steering fluid overflows from the resevoir.


Check up the hydraulic power steering pump.
See picture below for 1.6, 1.8 liters Audi (4 cyl.) engines:

If you find leaks and noise when runing, the hydraulic vane type pump is damaged. The pump **** air inside and mix air with oil resulting foam. Therefore fluid volume inside steering instalation rises. Then pressure overflows oil from the reservoir. You need repair or replace hydraulic vane type steering pump.
