Re: Help: Hydraulic Fluid Leak
Just got my 100 back from the shop after the fluid let loose from the
rack all in one day. Mine was a hose/O-ring problem which was
replaced ($86 for the part).
Heres the "ah-duh" obligitories: don't drive with the canister empty
and the pump going (goodbye pump), and don't put "hydraulic fluid" in
there - use only G002000 or say by-by to seals.
Fun tip of the day: the next time the kids are in the car tell 'em to
inflate the ski bag by blowing into the drain on the end!

My 5k has developed a hydraulic fluid leak. I top up the canister and it falls
below the MIN mark within 6 weeks. There are small drops of fluid under the
car below the firewall, but I can't see any leaks around the hose connections.
Where should I look? How can I test for leaks? The car has approx 105k miles
Thanks in advance for any advice.
