    its located by the rear d/s wheel. you can do it if u can lift it safely,and be careful of the pressure left in the system. its alot easier with a lift and proper tools

    doubt it is your issue. you need someone to help you at a shop to track down the failure.

    I was afraid of that. That is what I will do though, before I go and waste money on the wrong fixes. Thanks!
