Oil should not be there. This is a sign of worn oil pressure seals
Inside the steering body
. You will probably find a similar pipe connector on the other side of the steering body as well.
These are a drain pipe (if there is a leak)

agree with amiram. The pictures in your earlier post show lots of fluid at the tie rod boots. Probably time for a new steering rack. DIY doable, but PITA. Can be done alone, but helper is useful when wiggling the rack out.

Hi I was told by a mechanic that it would be about £400 to do a rack change I’ve never changed a rack I’m ok doing stuff if I watch a video tho I’ve done most stuff myself that way
Do you agree with the mechanic he said engine would have to lifted out

For 400, I would have the work done. If 1000, diy. But check with another shop. The engine does not have to be pulled. You will need an alignment.
