If this is on a flexible style hose to caliper, then clamp the caliper, remove the bolt and copper washers. Replace the washers, clean the area, make it free of corrosion and rebuild.
At a last resort, if you can't find replacement copper washers, then heat up the washers until soft, then rebuild quickly and tighten down.

Bleed that brake line, pump out the pedal and apply generous force to the pedal. Check the joint for any leaks once more.
Remember to clean any spilled brake fluid by splashing or hosing gently with water. Stay clear of any vehicle electrics.

Front brake hose leaks after replacement


If leaking at the caliper side, make sure the 2 copper gaskets are installed. One on each side of the bolt that goes through the brake hose. If leaking on the fitting side, make sure the connection is tight and there are no burrs on the flare of the line causing it to not seat properly

I have galaxy 2.3 air keeps coming from brake pedel dose any one know what it is please?


If your hearing air when you depress the brake pedal, then my guess is you have a vacuum leak, or the brake booster has a leak. You can try disconnecting the large hose going to the brake booster & plugging it with a bolt that will fit into the hose tightly, start the engine, press the brake if you don't hear the air, then I'd guess the booster is leaking & needs to be replaced..otherwise you'll need to check the hoses for leaks.

Vacum leak on vacum booster for brakes


check vacuum hose first and make sure it's seated properly and not leaking.
This vacuum hose, if leaking, will cause engine to run rough or die.

If you are leaking fluid, the problem is most likely the master cylinder leaking.

If the booster itself is bad, it is a very hard job to swap it out as the mounting bolts are far behind your gauges on the firewall.

I hope you have a good booster.
