Iíve been able to trace the metal pipe to the power steering reservoir and the fluid, which has leaked out, does have a slight reddish color (see picture of paper towel).
I only noticed a drip on the bottom of the skid plate; no drops were present on the ground. The level of the power steering fluid is still between the Min & Max indicators.
There appears to be a rubber mount for the oil filter drip plate, which covers these 2 pipes. To me it looks like the leak is coming from under this rubber mount or possibly from the connection between the rubber hose and the solid metal pipe.
Has anyone else had a leak in this area, if so was it in the metal pipe or at the clamp?
My truck is a 2006 with 46k miles is this something that is covered under warranty if I took it to the dealer?
Has anyone found an alternative power steering fluid which meets the Nissan specs?
I think I have the same problem..except it looks like my leak is comming from the bottom side of the oil filter mount assy..what ever the part is called where the filter mounts to the motor. I hope its the same leak as yours...lol
Couple weeks ago I had to add Powersteering fluid the reservoir was a little low.

Reviving an old thread. On the garage floor yesterday, I noticed a 2" diameter wet spot of power steering fluid directly under the frame rail and forward of the front passenger tire. After close examination and cleaning, the small leak is coming from the LOW pressure power steering metal return line, right where the tube bracket mounts to the top of the frame rail on the passenger side. I suspect road salt and dirt caused some corrosion to form inside the rubber isolator that holds the metal line inside the bracket.
I thought for sure it had to be a high pressure line or a leak at the banjo coupling, but that is not the case. Nissan doesn't sell that section of metal return line by itself, and there is no part number that I could find just for that return line.
After a call to the local Nissan dealer today, he confirmed that they only sell a complete power steering hose and tube kit (part# 49710-9FEOA). The kit comes complete with the high pressure lines, banjo, low pressure lines, pressure sensor, clamps, metal mounting brackets and rubber isolators. They charged $127 for the kit, which I thought was very reasonable considering the pressure sensor alone lists for $80. I'll have left over spare lines and parts for future use if necessary.
Here's a picture of the complete assembly that I bought. I borrowed the pic from an Ebay seller.
