SOURCE: power steering pump
if the leak isn't from the hoses or connectors under the car. Clean the pump area with carb cleaner spray, then tie a small bit of white cloth around both hoses (tighten the clamps at the same time). This will reveal the source of the leak. If the hoses are OK. It's most likely the front seal and requires a replacement pump.

Dear Stuck Alternator.....Yes there is a trick....pay attention....If you have the belt off already and the mounting nuts and bolts then we're almost there. There is a pressed spacer that helps to hold this alternator on and it does make it a little harder to get off. All you simply do is take a medium sized flat head screwdriver and pry on the longer bolt hole....it's going to swing sideways.....you want to pry it in that same direction.....will be fairly easy...get back to me if ya have any other questions...thx HOPE I COULD HELP!!

CAUTION Observe all applicable safety precautions when working around fuel. Whenever servicing the fuel system, always work in a well ventilated area. Do NOT allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
There are two types of fittings used on fuel filter connections. The banjo fitting or union bolt type uses a bolt and two washers to prevent leakage between an eyelet and the filter. The flare fitting type uses no washers or bolts. It uses a thread interference pattern to make a tight connection.
Fig. Remove the union bolt and two gaskets, then disconnect the inlet hose from the fuel filter
CAUTION To avoid personal injury, remember that the fuel system is under pressure. Release pressure slowly and contain spillage. Wear eye protection and observe no smoking/no open flame precautions. Have a dry powder fire extinguisher within arm's reach at all times.
Fig. A line wrench with an extension may be needed to loosen the inlet line at the filter-Corolla

Follow this steps
The items you will need include basic hand tools, shop rags, gloves, drip pan, fluid suction gun, power steering pump pulley removal tool, power steering pump pulley installation tool, power steering fluid, and a Haynes manual.
Use a suction gun to remove the power steering fluid.
Position a drip pan under the pump and disconnect the high pressure line and fluid return hose. Cap the ends of the lines.
Loosen the serpentine belt and slip it out of the power steering pump pulley. Replace any worn belts at this time.
Remove the bolts and nuts that hold the pump onto the engine.
Remove the pump. Now remove the pulley from the pump. To do this, use a power steering pump pulley removal tool. If you don't have one, you can rent one from Advance Auto Parts.
Remove the nuts to detach the pump from the brackets.
Reattach the bracket to the new pump. Reinstall the pulley.
Bolt the pump back into place. Slip the belt back onto the pulley and retighten. Reattach the high pressure line and return fluid hose.
Now fill the power steering fluid reservoir until it reaches to the proper level. Now start the vehicle. Recheck the fluid and add if necessary. Turn the wheels left and right a couple of times. So that's it, you are done. Test the vehicle to make sure it functions properly.
