    Where is the leak comming from? Is it the "silver things stickin out" aka brake line. Or is it actually comming from the "hydrolic control unit" aka ABS hydraulic control valve? If its coming from the line, you can replace it (but you will need to make a new one since prebent lines are not available). If its comming from the valve, the only fix is to replace the entire unit with a used (wrecking yard) or remanufactured unit.
