    The Jag 2.2d

    Hi all,

    I noticed slight leak of brake fluid on drivers rear tyre. Checked the brake fluid and it was still in max. any idea if this is a caliper issue or hose. Or can maybe order both? Has anyone experienced this before? I intend changing the brake pads this weekend any and rear disc too.

    Thanks,

    I would check the pipes, connectors and caliper. Is it possible that you have had the brakes replaced and someone has spilt fluid when bleeding. Need to remove wheel and inspect.

    It could be leaking around the handbrake lever on the caliper.

    The brake pipe crosses over the chassis just above and behind the wheel where it can be subjected to grit and small stones being flung up by the wheel. I know this because the pipe on my car burst at that point. Check the pipe for rust and leaking fluid in that area. It sounds like your brake pipe has rusted and has gone porous
    and is leaking fluid.

    Thanks for the reply rchiv,

    I haven't worked on the brakes yet. My plan was to sort that out this weekend. I had already ordered pads and rear discs because I noticed they were worn during inspection. The previous owner did admit it needed changing. Just wondering if it's safer to order the caliper too.

    It could be a metal pipe, a rubber hose or the caliper. It could just be a loose connection that needs a nip. When you can reach the damp areas dry them off and see if you can locate the exact failure before ordering anything.
