I agree with Bill. I haven't found a miracle solution for leaking acid. I haven't looked for one either? I take it all apart, remove affected parts for proper cleaning. Clean with 99.99% alcohol. Add baking soda to tooth brush while scrubbing to neutralize. Then blow dry with canned air. No easy fix.
