It takes less then 5 min to replace. purchase the part and you will see
where it goes and how easy it is to install. All you need is an oil filter
wrench or a large pair of pliers. MAKE SURE TO RELEASE ALL PRESSURE BEFORE
ATTEMPTING REPAIR! Key off......pump the brake pedal at least 60 times
before removing this part and do not turn key back on until the new part is
installed. Stop crying about the pressure test and the fact that you had to
purchase the part!!! The dealer did do a pressure test, how do you think
they told you the accumulator was bad??? A gauge has to be installed to
determine this.
