Me personally, I couldn't sleep good at night knowing that I have a leak, so I took care of it. Wasn't too terrible of a job, but I did scratched up my hands pretty good getting back in the cramped space. So, moderately difficult, but pretty quick job.

Since yours is so minimal right now I personally would give it another five to ten thousand miles and see if it even gets worse. Maybe that's all the more you're ever going to see of it. Good luck!
Sorry for the late response but thanks for your help and words.
I've been keeping an eye on it. Sprayed it down with brake cleaner The same day I posted the my find.
It's been pretty good since. You can see a bit of that oil wetness around the area and then some since then. But nothing I'm worried about now.

a few months ago, i noticed my steering fluid was getting low, but i filled it up, and it has been full ever since.

i think it had some initial seepage/leakage, then it went away. I don't have alot of mileage on my vehicle, so i contributed it to break in.

i keep an eye on it every time i change the oil, and the level has remained full.

I have no explanation, but i am not bothered by it other than the initial observation.

Had hard steering issues in the cold, did the reservoir pull and blasted the filter screen out with brake clean, couldn't get the factory crimps on the PS top tight enough. I got Ps fluid dripping down on belts and splattered into the bay. Belts a squeekin'

Did you get this figured out was it the PS pump? I have a 14 limited and have a whine when accelerating and noticed a slow leak but still functioning as it should as the shop we took it to said.

Hey, so I ended up trading her in for a '21 TRD ORP. Never figured out for sure what it was but it was such a slow seep I never worried much. Didn't affect functionality of anything in my case. Wish you luck!
