Steering Oil leak

This afternoon I started my Touareg V8 after a week and within a minute some clear fluid started leaking from pipes on the driver's side just below the radiator. Was just wondering what this fluid could be. Meanwhile I was checking the level of steering fluid reservoir. The level reduced after few more minutes of leaking and now the reservoir is completely empty.

  • Is this a costly repair if sent to garage or can it be done myself.
  • Which parts here need a replacement

That oily dusty film says it has been leaking a while. clean that **** up and figure out where the leak is and could be easy quick repair.

That is the difference between you and me, I never go back to the carpet store.
