what you're telling us is that you've got a visual on the leak, right? if so, just remove the reservoir and either dry/clean it & epoxy it, or replace it. i've never pulled it, but on every other vehicle i've seen, it's pretty simple. if you mean that it's going away from the reservoir, but you can't find the leak, i've always used a pressure tester and prayed that i was able to see a leak when i pumped it (since it's something bad if i can't).
