On mine it was the actual rack itself. Give it a good look underneath if you can or take the wheels off and see if you can see it coming out of any of the track control arm joints/boots.

'just sprayed underbeath the bonnet off with a steam clean jet washy thing, the pipe which has split (more likley cut by the timing belt of something) was the pipe returning to the bottle. would i be right in thinking theres not much pressure so could do a temporry fix until i get a new pipe? my idea is to couple the rubber pipe bk together with a bit of plastic tube inserted into the rubber and jubilee clamped up'
