While driving home last night, I suddenly lost my brakes. I managed to drive home safely, and found that there was a leaking of brake fluid on the driver side rear brake. I filled up the reservoir with fresh brake fluid, and pumped the brakes. I changed the pads and drums about a year and a half ago. I'm not sure if the brake line got nicked somehow. Is this an easy fix for a home mechanic?
