1996 750iL - Leaking brake fluid from brake accelerator

Has anyone replaced a brake accelerator. I have a mechanic to do it but i need to order the part and can't find anything online at all. I'm wondering if it is called something else. Thanks

I guess it is a control valve for the self leveling suspension. My mechanic said it had to do with the load of the back of the car( people and luggage) and looking at some diagrams, that seems about right. Thanks for the websites and contact info!
