View Full Version : Losing brake fluid

Well, looks like I have a brake fluid leak from the wheel cylinder on the passenger side rear drum brake. Topped up again tonight when the brake light came on, it last came on a week ago, topped up then as well. The reservoir is still half full when the brake light comes on.

Gonna give Metro Nissan a call tomorrow and see if I can get it in for a fix, warranty runs out in November this year so hopefully covered.

Anyone else had this?

Yeah mate, got oil dripping out of it, I took the wheel and drum off and you can see the oil drip around the rear ram of the wheel cylinder.

See what they say today. It'll need the pads changed on both rear wheels now as well, they can pay for that too.

Well it appears that it will be covered by warranty but not until at least Wednesday.

Apparently a new wheel cylinder and brake shoes are not kept on the shelf and need to come up from Melbourne.
