Hey guys,

I'm about to order some P/S res hoses and clamps since mine is leaking.

Question though, how worth it is it to replace the reservoir as well? Mine is mucky inside, but the outside appears fine and I recently replaced the O-ring which cured my top-reservoir leaks.

I've read people like to replace them too, but I'm wondering if it's due to not wanting to get in and clean it up, or can some part I'm not seeing inside of it go bad too?

thanks!

it has an in-built filter so just replace it. Don't have to fuss around trying to get the clamps off as well. The hose that connects to the radiator can be a pain. Have a dremel ready.
