The F1 System on Ferraris can take some occasional maintenance to keep running properly. The Accumulator typically lasts about 10 years and once it goes bad, the F1 pump will have to work harder than normal to keep pressure in the system. This can lead to the F1 pump failing prematurely and other issues. Replacing the accumulator is fairly simple. After replacing the accumulator it’s a good idea to bleed the F1 fluid to make sure there are no air bubbles in the system.
