Steering banjo bolt leak

Hey all,
I used dye and can see that I have a dripping leak from the banjo bolt, I'm presuming leads to the pump? Anybody know the fix for this? Just order a new high pressure hose?

Is the banjo fitting leaking, or is it running down from somewhere? If just the banjo...you might get away with some new crush washers after a good clean of the fittings. If the hose is rotten, or the crimp is leaking...yes, new hose required. Make sure you get the right type of fluid...I know my Altima uses Dexron VI ATF as the equiv to Nissan OEM steering fluid.
