Hi Janie, Brake fluid does not leak from the tyres but instead it leaks from the rear brake cylinders onto the brake bondings, into the drums or discs and then drips onto the tyres. Your vehicle is a danger to you and all who share the road with you. Take it with all urgency to a workshop and have it sorted out very as soon as you read this. Regards John

SOURCE: brake fluid leaking alot and now noticed fluid from rear tires

if your car has rear drum then the wheel cylinders could be leaking and in need of replacement. If it has rear disc brakes then it could be leaking fluid where the brake hose goes into the caliper or the brake hose my be worn or have a hole in it. Or it could be a a brake line. You should have it checked because you don't want air getting into the braking system.

Brake fluid leak on rear drum


If you have no evidence of leaking outside the drum, most likely your brake piston is leaking or the drive shaft seal is leaking. Pull off the drum and look for the piston which spreads the two brake pads normally situated at the top. Inspect for leaks. If the fluid is thin, it is most likely brake fluid. If it is heavier like oil and really stinks, it is gear oil from a leaking seal.

How to replace grease seal on rear axle


Leaking oil at the rear wheels can be one of two things, Easy fix is brake fluid, this would be the rear brake wheel cylinder leaking. Check your brake fluid tank under the hood for low fluid. If that is ok. Your leak may be your rear axle shaft seal. You need to remove the tire/wheel ether way. Jack up the car to pull the wheel, take your lugs loose while the tire is still on the ground, it is easy to take them loose this way. Take the EM: brake off, and jack up this side of the car. Your car could have disk or drums as both are offered on some Dodges. Once the tire is off you will see if you have disk or drums brakes. If drums you will need to pull the drum off at access the brake cylinder to see if that is leaking or not. If drums you have to back off the brake shoes by the adjusting wheel thru a small access window in the back plate. If you have disk brakes the caliper is right there and will be easy to see if it is leaking. If you have determined it is the rear axle seal leaking, this may be best done by a shop, due to needing a few special tools to remove the axle and then reinstall a seal. You will need a slide hammer. If drum brakes you will have to remove the brake backing plate, this means shoes and all hardware, please take pictures and get as good focus as you can to see how everything goes back together. Once down to the axle mounting, remove the 4 bolts and attach the slide hammer and pop out the axle, catch any fluid that will leak out, once out you can determine which type of seal set up you have as some have press fit collars that may have to be cut off. . Hope this helps FixYa up.

I have a 1977 chevy caprice classic that is leaking brake fluid from rear tire,can you tell me the cause?


sounds like you may have a leaking rear wheel cylinder. Once you remove the drum you should be able to see if it is leaking.

If its leaking enough for you to see it on the back of the tire than the brake shoes are probably soaked as well and will need to be replaced.

I should have said what kind of leak I have brake fluid leaking from the rear passinger tire


you mean from "near" your rear passenger tire. Tires don't have brake fluid in them...!
Take a look at the inner part where the wheel mounts to the axle. There is a brake line there, so look to see if it looks like the brake fluid is coming from it, (and that you verify the brake fluid resevoir under the hood is low) or that it might be from the brake drum area. If it's from the brake drum, you probably have a "wheel cylinder" leaking, and need to remove the wheel and drum to verify this.

My blazer is leaking fluid from the right rear tire area . and i hear a strange knocking from my rear end


The leaking could be from your brake line, can you tell what color the fluid is and the texture? is is slippery or feels more like water? If it is brake fluid leaking that means you have a broke or busted line or a caliper/brake cylinder leaking which needs to be fixed quickly.

Smoking from my drivers rear tire and alot of grinding??? what could be my problem


Sounds like a brake problem and could have a wheel cylinder leaking onto the hot brakes or a axle seal leaking onto the brakes. Look on the inside of the tire and see if there is any wet fluid on the tire .
