Question about 1997 Audi A4
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.

In the case of Audi power steering, a rebuild can be as expensive as replacement. Try Shokan parts, or a local audi wrecker, for a good used pump - should be around $100. Relatively easy to replace.
Just make sure you use correct Audi power steering fluid (local Audi/VW dealer, or aftermarket specialist)

Agree with outdoorsman5 - the only chance of resolving this without pulling out the steering rack is Stop Leak which is designed to cause the seals in the rack to swell and thereby stop the leak.
Some people have reported good success with it - however it may only work out to be a medium to short term solution and depends on the leak coming past the seals. If the rack itself is cracked or otherwise damaged it will not work.
Have a look at something like this. Its not too expensive and certainly worth a try.

Testimonial: "Great advice. I will give it a try!"
SOURCE: I ran over a cement
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.
