The bad: The line to the trunk reservoir seems to leak.

I'm assuming you've plugged it at the reservoir end, before testing? Could be just the grommet otherwise.
I did.  I also inspected the grommet, which seemed fine - properly pliable, not hardened/cracked/etc.  The tank itself holds vacuum fine (using another tube).
