BRAKE FLUID LEAKING

1995 Buick Lesabre

Brakes problem
1995 Buick Lesabre V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 185000 miles

Brake fluid is leaking from the round master brake cylinder behind the fuild reservior. Is this an easy repair or is mechanic only territory. I am going through a bottle fluid every 2 1/2 weeks or so. I know I need to get it fixed, but I dont' want to spend that much on this car. Any Advise would help.
Thanks

If you have mechanical ability, you can do it. Basically, you remove the two brake lines from the MC and then unbolt if from the brake booster. Once it's removed, the new one goes on in the opposite order. The only difference is you must bench bleed the new one. The directions should be with the new MC. If they are not, let me know.
