RE: Brake problems.

I think that "blue plastic bottle" is a vacuum resivoir for the door locks, etc.

The brake accumulater is charged with *very* high pressure nitrogen gas and
should *NOT* be replaced by your average back-yard mechanic. (IMFO) It contains
a bladder and is re-pressurized by the hydraulic pump. It supplies brake
assist after engine shut-off and when vacuum would not otherwise be available
in turbo vehicles while under boost.
