Default Re: Brake systems on Turbo Regals

The accumulator bulb is probably the #1 failure. It looses the high pressure nitrogen gas charge eventually. My 45K mile car has gone through at least 3 of them that I can remember.

The brake switch on the unit sometimes will develop a leak around the connector (and there was an early recall to replace the switch with a new design).

Occaisonally the pump motor will die ... usually from running too much/too long due to leaking internal seals in the MC or a bad accumulator.
