what it looks like the problem is, is the brake accumulator or "brake bomb". Went and started it and checked the brakes, shut it off and the peddle is hard as a rock. Looked everywhere and cant locate the damn thing! Guess Ill read some more and see what I find.

I only know it from my 750, very close on driver side (LHD) to the front light.
Below is the ABS unit.

correct! Someone replied on "caugh roadflea" behind the front wheelwell front plastic panel. I need a bomb part# 34331162056 which is the same as on a E32 750iL SEDAN, M70, AUTO (GC83)... previous owner replaced the pump and his Indy said he needed another new one...

the fluid looks like a mix of ATF and gearlube so I want to know how much it will take to flush and replace this crap... Plus would like to find a new bomb under the $150.00 US price.
