Default Power Steering Fluid Accumulating On Top Of Reservior

2006 PT automatic non turbo.

Every few days I see a small amount of power steering fluid accumulate on top of the power steering fluid reservoir.
Not much but enough that I notice it and have to wipe it up.
Anyone had the same problem?
Could it be a leaky cap?

Thanks for any ideas.

Cap is bad. I had the same problem. I could only find a new cap at the dealer for about $25.
The caps are spring loaded...when you get your new cap & install it, you will see you will have to push down to turn it.

New cap installed.

Cost $22 and change.

Cap comes with an expiry date, you can see it if you look on the box it came in.

That's odd, what would make it expire?

No idea.
That's why I posted the photo, I thought it was odd too.
Of course I did want to show off my new PS reservoir cap too , but I put the box in the photo because it had an expiry date.
