1999 996 Power steering loss

Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 31000;

Driving home from work today, the steering became very heavy. I could hear a popping sound toward the front of the car when I was driving. When I got home the underside of the car was dripping with very light oil. It started at the front of the car. I removed the undertray and it appears that the steering rack (?) is the source of the failure. Any idea what may have failed and what am I in to to repair? Question 2- When pulling away with the window open, I hear a chirp from the engine. It sounds like a quick belt slip. What do you suggest? Thanks for your guideance.
