140 Steering Leak

I have a slow leak in my '97 S500 power steering system that I can't see or access. I suspect the connection of the high pressure line to the steering box because the steering box (not the pump) is wet with fluid underneath the car. Is this connection accessible without pulling the engine? It doesn't look like it. Have the Star CD but can't find a repair article on this.

Update - found the leak, coming from steering shaft seal - great! Anyway, I think a rebuilt unit is in order. Anyone have a recommendation for a reputable and reasonable replacement?

I'd be tempted to have yours rebuilt. Do you have a good shop in your area? If you don't know there is a thread for recommended shops sorted by region.
