Power Steering leak - 3.5L, any help appreciated!

Hey everyone I am new to the forum and I did a quick search but did not find a whole lot on the power steering leak that I appear to be having.

So to help out I posted this picture of where the leak is:

So i can order the correct part I would appreciate your input on 1.) if this is indeed the high pressure hose/line that is leaking? and 2.) is this a DIY job or will this require a mechanic or dealer?

Thanks much!!!

Wow thanks a lot! that helps out huge and is a much better diagram than the one I had found before.

Any insight into the job itself? I've tackled so repairs before but never anything with the steering components. More importantly not sure if do to the magnificence that is the FWD layout if the engine needs to be pulled in order to hook up the new parts as they are convoluted up behind the engine and frame rails?

Thanks again!!

unfortunately, i've never worked on any of my altima's power steering systems. as you said, space is the big hurdle. the best advise i can give you is before you start, plan out your attack. make sure you have all the tools and parts you'll need. good luck.
