If it is leaking in the wheel cylinder it is not good because lining
are likely soaked and not working well. It could be cause by a stuck
brake adjuster that has allowed wheel cylinder to over extend.
Shep so I'm going to pull the wheel off and look at a leak? If I knew the
parts of the rear brake and what leaks and what causes a leak I would not
ask the question. Hell I don't know what Im looking at??
I thought there were prob 1 or 2 reason why it is leaking and some would
know where and why.
And about how much to fix.
I have been just adding fluid but now its leaking on my newly poured pea
gravel drive way and now I have my wife on my azz.
Now to get er off my azz I got to get it fixed.
If you don't have enough sense to relate adding brake fluid all the
fluid coming from the rear wheel area.......
then you don't have enough sense to help us help you.
go to a shop and a get a free inspection.
best advice you're gonna get.
want a guess.....??
only a guess..???
You ran over a reeeeelly big arse racoon in the road.....he got tangled
the rear wheel....wrapped around it and slapped the sheet out of the
brake line fer a couple 20 miles or so, utill he went flying out. In
madness the racoon, in a frantic effort to end his torment, grasped at
bleeder screw on the wheel cylinder, while clamouring to end his
nightmare he loosened the bleeder......got fluid in his eye....lost his
attempting to clense his lense.......and off into the night he flew.
you need to retighten the bleeder screw and all well be well.
only a guess.......
in case of a real diagnostic need........
get a free inspection.

Hey Ass Whip, dipstick
This is how this works, if your not a mechanic, you find out what the
problem is. What it takes to fix it and about how much.
You next take it to a shop You get from the shop guy his version on what
it is and what it takes to make the repair. And about what price range.
This way you know going in what it is and what it takes to fix something.
You get back a we got to change the real hub assembly, put new brakes,
change the domahicky yang yang. You know somebody is pulling your chain.
