Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Cant seem to determine where the leak is coming from! All the lines are dry and the leak seems to be coming from the front section of the engine, not from the steering rack.
The Hoses going to the pump has to be spotless. if there is a anything like grease or a little piece of grim on the sealing washers, That is what will leak on you. Hopefully this helps cause it happened to me. I had to put in fluid once a week.

A power steering system has a rack,fluid tank with hose to pump,pump,high pressure in hose and a low pressure return hose to tank. I f you say theres no leak at the rack that only leaves those other conponents. I would check the pump its self and the high pressure hose where it leaves the pump. It may also be leaking at the tank, where the hose leaves to the pump because it is only fastend down with clips and they can come loose or the hose can split. hope this helps
