    This morning found a brake fluid leak on the drivers side front wheel as shown in the photos, the brakes have been working fine although I topped up the fluid a little a week ago which was low as the warning line was on. Anyone offer me advice on what the problem exactly is and how to fix it? thanks!!

    Ditto...

    That is not the line leaking, the the caliper itself. They are really cheap. Normally the core charge is the same as the cost of a rebuilt caliper. Also, you "should" replace the calipers in pairs..

    Thanks for the help and even though things are cheap in Ecuador like Gas, drugs, women and bananas lol things like used cars and parts cost more here unfortunately! It cost me $70 to get it repaired on the spot, including parts and labour. On ebay I could have got the caliper for about $33 from the US but with shipping the price would have been more than what it cost me to repair it.
