Default power steering resevoir

When I take the cap off my power steering resevoir it is under pressure, not much but enough that it burps when its removed. Ive noticed that the fluid lines are starting to leak at the ends where they connect. Is this normal or should I drill a small hole in the top of the cap to relieve the build up pressure?

Default

I wouldn't go drilling a hole on it . I think it's ok . The dampness at the hoses may be just be normal seepage . I would only replace them if they get really wet looking .
