    Sounds like a hydraulic brake modulator valve for the abs system. Most likely the piece is not repairable. Take a close look. Maybe the leak is coming from a brake line at the modulator and not the mod. itself. Also if the mod. needs replacing it may require the use of a scan tool to properly bleed the brake system.
