Don't know about your mystery leak but wanted to
ask what you paid for your accumulators? Did you
install or have a garage do it? Labor cost?
I've heard it isn't the most fun job.

I recently changed the rear accumulators and when the mechanic went to fill up the resevoir, he noticed it was empty. So he put the car up on a lift and noticed a leak from the frame but could not trace it. I put a piece of cardboard under the spot and noticed it leaks just a few drops a day. Said it may have been the steering box, but couldn't be sure. Any thoughts other than what's in the archives?
