Power Steering Fluid Leakage on Ford Fusion

Power steering fluid may leak at the power steering pump, line, and / or steering rack. The lines may not be clamped tightly enough, causing a leak. Add new clamps and seals to the power steering line to the pump and to the steering rack.

It's the POWER STEERING PRESSURE SWITCH that is known for cracking and leaking on these cars. I'm about to replace my second one. The first one cracked at 60k miles and now again at 110k miles. You have to remove your wheel-well cover in the front passenger side to get access. It's a brass bolt with a plastic piece on top where a wire plugs into it.
Steering makes groaning noises on sharp turns, especially upon going up driveways. Was told is could need new pump or fluid exchange.

Appears to be leaking near P.S.F. cooler at rear of radiator. I have not identified the leak location yet as it looks like the radiator needs to be pulled. No time left at the end of the day to finish the same day.
