You had to learn the hard way. I just bite the bullet and
buy new on items like this. My rational is: If it lasted
140,000 miles and ten years (the bomb on my 5KS) or
75,000 miles and 5 years (on the V8), then I'll
get at least that out of a new grenade. I did try a
recharged (rebuilt) accumulator when the 5KS bomb went,
it lasted 5 months and the brake light was back on. I
ended up having to replace it, this time with a new one,
that was two years ago, sans problems since.
