Re: brake fluid seepage

well it is brake fluid so yes you shoukld worry about it. but i wouldnt worry too much. clean it as well as you can and then check for new leaks. perhaps someone spilled? even if not you can narrow down where the elak is coming from

Re: brake fluid seepage

Brake fluid destroys anything made of plastic. Make sure it doesn't come in contact with anything. A MC rebuild kit should only cost somewhere around $20.00 and is pretty easy to install. They are usually just seals and gaskets. I haven't done the MC on the truck, but I have done them on other vehicles and it was pretty simple.
