Yesterday I changed the brake pads out on my 96 ford explorer. In the process I removed the brake line on the driver side caliper. Needless to say fluid leaked around and out. Before getting to the point, I did put in new pads successfully. For the most part. I reattached the brake line and refilled the brake fluid that spilled out. I tested the brakes and noticed that I could push to the pedal all the way back, it was also not stopping at the response time I liked. I figured I would check it in the morning when it was light out. This morning, I noticed brake fluid was leaking all over the caliper and tire. What could have caused this?
when I reinstalled the brake cable to the caliper, it went bolt, washer, connector, caliper.
have the same problem?
