Brake fluid leaking
Hi i was driving around the other day in my EA and suddenly the brakes stopped functioning properly, it became extremely soft and i couldnt feel any pressure when i apply the brake ofcourse the car wasnt stopping straight away. pull the car over had a look at the brake fluid and almost all of it is gone. At first thought the master cylinder was dead but after topping it up with brake fluid its working fine again. So did a lot of looking to locate the leak and found out its coming outa the front right wheel, its only seeping out so its not leaking alot since i had the car serviced like 2 months ago it wouldve had the brake fluid topped up.
now to the problem what can cause the fluid to leak out of brakes? has anyone heard of or experience similar problems before?
