SOURCE: power steering rack leaking

If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!

Its most likely a seal on the power steering rack by the age it will most likely just be a seal they are about £7 in UK but possible the rack is goosed although I doubt it, please be careful using the car as it can lock the steering in position, and,,,, well you get it.

SOURCE: My power steering is heavy after the dealer

This does not solve your problem, but perhaps power in numbers will help. I have had 2 steering racks replaced on my 2006 TL. Acura is not claiming any defects, but the steering is extremely difficult to turn. Hardly even feels like I have power steering. I'm upset because I had to pay for the 2nd rack just 14 months after the 1st one was replaced. I expected more from the Acura brand!

SOURCE: Looks like an oil leak above steering rack. Is

Check out the steering fluid at the rubber hose connecting to the metal hose. It gets deteriorated and made some leak. When the car is traveling, it could splash everywhere. Try to tighten the clamp. If it doesn't work, replace that rubber hose and a clamp. If it is a case have the steering fluid flushed out to get a new fresh fluid for your steering.

Yes it will - Audi uses proprietary power steering fluid. It's mineral-oil based. Using other fluid can/will damage and destroy the pump and rack seals. Purge the entire system as soon as possible and replace it with Pentosin CHF11S fluid from a dealership.

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

You can buy a can of stop leak for power steering but I have had limited success using this. It would be the cheapest route to go to see if it will work.
