Hole in power steering pipe

  Clio 182
We've noticed a leak for a while but have only just got round to looking properly, I have a small hole in the metal power steering line near the steering rack (the heat shield bracket was bent back and has been rubbing :() I know its around £180 for the pipe or about £50 to get one made which is fine however taking it out looks like an absolute nightmare as it seems to run around everything so no idea where the joins are or where to start to take it out. Wondering if there is any sort of fix that can be done in situe? Have tried various repair tapes and its currently got a jubilee clip sat on it to try and atleast slow it down abit, I was going to cut and sleeve but access is extremely limited and the hole is close to a bend so not sure there would be enough space.
