Leaking ABS unit

I have same leak others have identified on the 03. It is at the base near the front of the unit. It's a substantial leak. I am not getting a flashing brake warning light as long as I keep the reservoir filled and the brakes seem to work fine.

Has anybody ever located the cause of this leak?

Is the only option to replace the unit? (major $$$$)?

Any suggestions?

Re: Leaking ABS unit

Looks like I have the same leak. Degreased that area last night and can now see a slight seepage around the front base of the ABS unit

Is the the only solution to replace the ABS modulator with a new/used unit?
