Hey there, thanks for the question.

Sounds like you may have a leak at the booster since there is a loud squeal. Did the dealer identify the leak location before recommending that idea?

No, They haven't.
Well based solely off your explanation. Over the net I would say the accumulator isn’t bad and causing the loud squeal. It could be pricey, but not really close to $4000. That’s a pretty high quote l, sounds like they just want to replace it all.

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
