Computer says I need to replace the SBC pressure accumulator…

Customer Question
Computer says I need...

Computer says I need to replace the SBC pressure accumulator and I was wondering how many labor hours does that require.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I drive a 2006 CDI with 165k. Warning came on about a month ago. The pads and rotors are relatively new. What else can I tell you?
