16v SLS pump leak question

It looks like I have a leak at the pump for the SLS system. I cleaned everything off and it looks like I have a leak on the return side line. Is the one on the bottom side of the pump that hooks up the soft line going to the bottom of the reserve tank. As far as I can tell, it looks like it is coming out at the point where the metal elbow comes out of the pump. I tightened the O clamp on the hose and I do not think it's coming out of that hose (that hose is new).

I am assuming that the back of the pump is sealed and that hydro fluid could not leak out the back. So is there a O ring at where the metal elbow goes into the pump? Do I need to take the pump off to replace the elbow? Any ideas?

Thanks

The SLS pump mounts into an adaptor that has a gasket & o-ring.

That much I kind of figured but since I am only leaking hydro fluid I am assuming it is not leaking from the mounting point but rather at the hose point. Do you know if the metal elbow hose has a O ring or seal that I can replace?

No o-ring there, only a flare fitting.

Are these prone/likely to leak? I cleaned it down and I cannot see any where else where it could come from. Do I need to take the pump off to replace it or can I do it with it on the car?
