While you debate with yourself to attempt the repair, make sure you keep the proper level of power steering fluid in the system. If the level gets low enough, you can experience pump and steering rack damage that is much more expensive to repair. Even on a slow leak like this, I would check it once a day since it is on the pressure hose (which can leak much worse pretty quickly). The 2005 Santa Fe uses Hyundai PSF-3 fluid in the power steering unit, which is the same thing as Dexron II/III automatic transmission fluid. Do not use any other type of fluid in the power steering unit including Hyundai SP-III ATF.
