just wondering if the washer has gone where the bolt goes in
Which bolt are you meaning? The only ones that will leak fluid are the bleed nipple and the banjo joint. If it's the banjo, could try replacing with copper or aluminium crush washers?
yes the banjo joint,it was going out of the bottom of there
just working on my rear brakes at the moment, if its leaking from the bottom of the joint only then more than likely the washer.should be two thereone either side.
