    Leaking front brake fluid

    Hi,
    About 2 years ago, while fixing up my car, the dealer found leaking front driver side brake fluid and told me that the front caliper piston is bad and replaced brand new caliper.
    I haven't driven the car much (maybe 2-3K miles) since then but found out yesterday that the same brand new caliper is leaking again on the same side (I got low brake fluid warning)

    Could it be something wrong and not the caliper since it is very much brand new?

    Thanks,
    -Mike

    Take the tire off and see if you can tell where it's leaking from. Check brake lines, bleeder screw, hoses, etc. Try calling the dealer and see if they'll warranty the repair since it's only been a couple K miles - might say no way, but won't hurt to ask.

    Invoice should be in their system - calling them even without it will get you an answer on whether they'll warrant the repair or not.

    If no warranty-then get a can of brake clean,spray it off good,and pump the pedal. Should be able to find the leak without much problem after that.
