Default Power steering leak

2002 A6 3ltr Quatro - I have a leak in my power steering, it appears to be around the rack (both sides). I cant seem to pinpoint it as I cant get a clear view of the rack as it is embedded behind a bulkhead. The car has only done 84000, is there a common fault with these cars or could it be something simple. How do I gain access?

Cheers Johnboy

I have no much idea that how you can access but in my point of view steering works by creating what is known hydraulically as a pump and dump system that uses hydraulic fluid, pressurized by your power steering pump..
