Re: Banjo bolt leaking after new ss line install

I'll ask an obvious question - did you install a new crush washer a the caliper? Always use new crush washers when you remove the brakeline from the caliper.

Is it leaking at the caliper or where the brakeline enters the block that the banjo bolt goes through?

On the last two sets of SS brakelines I have installed, both of the front brakelines leaked where the hose entered the little block at the end. Luckily, there was a nut there to tighten up the compression fitting - just a nudge with a wrench fixed it both times.

It could be that the block needs to be flipped over if it will fit either way.

Hope that helps!
