the accumulator sphere acts as a damper on the regulator, as well as being a reserve of pressure for the brakes
the ticking is at under 10 sec when idling, and slightly longer when driving (when I come to a halt at the traffic lights, the pulsating is more infrequent - IF that makes sense).
Question then is WHAT MUST I DO to prevent further damage?
I did notice earlier today when the car is idling and I press the break, car drops an a tad (as if fluid being diverted from spheres to breaks and back again. Is that normal? I have though to let it idle for 20 sec or so to see this slight movement.
