Default power steering fluid leak


I have a 2005 Camry that is leaking power steering fluid. A mechanic recently took a look at it and said the power steering hose needs to be replaced. Does anyone know where I can find detailed instructions on how to perform the repair (I saw a youtube video of the operation being performed on a different vehicle, but wanted a Camry specific instruction)? Also, what is a common approach to locate the leak? I want to make sure there isn't a simple solution to the problem.

Thanks in advance for any help!

No help on the video. Might ask at the Toyotanation website.

Access to the pump is via the wheel well or under the car. If a PS hose, should be straight forward.
