The leak is at the cap on which I replaced the o-ring.  At idle w/o any
steering activity there's a cute little spray arcing straight over to the
frame rail.  I'm going to try to replace the o-ring again w/o removing the
pump.  The cap that's leaking is the one that faces straight toward the
frame rail.

I pulled the pump a couple of weeks ago and replaced an o-ring in a
leaking x-cap.

Today, GF returns home from errands with Pentosin gusher.  Everything's
soaked, including front bumper, headlight, lower door panels, rear tire.

It's too dirty and wet to tell what's leaking until I clean it up.  I'm
hoping it's an unrelated failure.  Any thoughts on whether my o-ring
repair could have caused something else downstream?
