Default Urgent need help...Please

Does anyone know where I could get a powersteering fluid resevoir bottle for a GT turbo. My mechanic fixed my timing belt and water pump and I noticed a leak of brown fluid. My mechanic found out it was the power steering pump resevoir bottle that is leaking. He said it looks like it had been epoxyed.he must have broken it when he was doing the work. Now he can't get just the bottle as it only comes from the dealer with the pump bolted to it and cost $400.00. He is looking in BC now. The bottle is specific to the GT...this is upsetting as it never leaked before. Anyone help me or have one?

I'm meeting with my mechanic, ex-CJD master mechanic, to see if he can suggest anything. He's the one I always go to for parts...

There's a place here on the other side of Charlotte from me, called Pick-A-Part, it's a junkyard, they said they have two GT's in the yard. If I can get over there on Thursday to heist some parts, I'll see if they have that. Any idea how hard it is to remove? If I can pull it, it should be pretty cheap, but I'll let you know. The guy didn't know if he had that part or not, so I'll print out from the Parts catalog and bring it along with me.

Hmmm... parts catalog doesn't show the reservoir separate... even more hmmm.. the service manual shows what I've attached below, with no description on pulling the unit apart!!!

Well my mechanic located a pump with resevoir for 125$ Canadian....Hopefully it will be shipped to him tomorrow.
I decided i will pay for the pump and he will cover the 2 hours of labour cost. I felt bad because he is a great mechanic and a nice guy. Fair, reasonable, trustworthy etc....which is hard to find. he has done lots for me in the past. Hope it all gets back together soon and NO MORE LEAKS. Pray for me and my PT.
