    I'm replacing the F1 accumulator as a maintenance item. I'll be damned if this thing is tightened to hulk force torque ratings. I'm trying to remove it using a rubber strap oil filter wrench with a MAC tools metal 3 claw oil filter wrench over the rubber straps. Is there a particular wrench that can fit over the hex fitting at the bottom of the accumulator? It would need to be oddly shaped indeed...

    I just purchased a new accumulator and am curious as to what people’s responses are here.

    For those that have removed the accumulator themselves - any rips/advice?

    How did this go? I need to replace mine as well. Did you have to hook up a scanner to bleed the system, or is it as simple as removing the old and installing the new one?

    release pressure first, or it will be a disaster

    Not sure what you are referring to.

    Open a bleed screw to ensure the system is at nil pressure. Not sure this will make it any easier to undo the accumulator, but it will certainly prevent the mess if F1 fluid if you uncrew the accumulator with pressure in the system.
