I just replaced the accumulator ball and the pump relay on my 90 SC (thanks to help from fellow board members) because I had no brakes now im leaking brake fluid from the reservoir it looks like its coming from the back grommet thing that connects it to the master cylinder. My question is how do you take the reservoir off I tried just yanking on it and nothing. Is there somthing im missing?

Yes,

There are two thin metal pins about an 1/2 long that secure the reservoir to the master cylinder. One is just under where it reads in French and the other is a few inches behind that. Use a straight pick or a thin nail to push them thru, then pry the reservoir out. Be careful not to break the plastic nipples on the reservoir that go into the cylinder. There are three. Also, disconnect the electrical harness to it, and the hose. You should be good!
