I did the accumulator replacement. I have the factory microfiche library and looked the job up before starting. There is a control valve in the left rear that has a bleeder screw that can drain off the pressure on the system. I removed about a quart of fluid. I did this but the job was still messy since some of the fluid still drips down on you. Both sides were very hard to get at. There is no room to swing the wrenches. A lot of them were loosened with crowfoot sockets. The car has 101,000 mi. on it and the fittings on the left rear were very rusty due to the Northeast road salting. The rear suspension is really complex and all of the components are shoehorned into place. I still have the grunting but I will check it out at a later date and get back to the forum.
