Hello and Welcome..

My name is XXXXX XXXXX Im happy to help / advise you ...

The usual place for such leaks are at the actual hydraulic unit - that the container check there....but it has to be said.. the leak if you have one, can be anywhere in the system..

So if its not there as above, you literally have to check the lines - but its not usually a line fault - unless its chaffed and created a leak- its usually on the connections to the component parts - so you need to check on there.

Usually though if you have a leak -you will see signs of "wet" - so have a good look around for that first - that will give you an idea as to where to look - a tip is to use a good torch in the areas you are looking as its not always obvious - Too, you may have to remove the side panels to check.

Don't forget to check the actual pipe that comes from the container / reservoir as well as another possible source.

Working through as above - if you have a definate leak, you will find it .

Let me know if you need anything else -
