HydroBoost leaking

I have an 05 and the Hydroboost is leaking between the master cylinder and the hydroboost unit. I can find no information other than the replace the entire hydroboost unit. It's expensive! Why can't you take it apart and replace o-rings and seals?
Thanks

I was having trouble out of mine. Get yourself some Lucas Oil Powersteering additive. It had stopleak in it as well. Cured my trouble. You are exactly right about the expese for a new one. I almost fell outa my chair!

Thahks. About a month ago I drained the reservoir and added Prestone PS fluid with Stop Leak. So far it is still leaking. I will try the Lucas Oil additive.

Thanks
