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 
on it.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
