2002 Acura RL
I replaced the Front Passenger brake caliper because I had a slow leak. The leak looked to be coming from the piston area, so I replaced the whole caliper (thanks to the video on the rear caliper replacement on the ’99 Acura RL). After putting everything together and bleeding the brake line, I took the car for a drive and my brakes were VERY spongy/squishy – I had to practically stand on the brake pedal to stop. I took it back to the garage, and its leaking break fluid. It’s dripping out of the Banjo Bolt. I’ve tried different combinations of using the new washers and the old washers, but nothing is working. I’ve got the bolt as tight as I can, but it still leaks, and leaks worse when we take it out for a drive. (The new caliper did not come with a new banjo bolt, so I’m still using the old one.) I’ve had the car up and down for 3 test drives this weekend, and the leak has gotten worse, and the brakes are still spongy.
Could the Banjo Bolt be bad? Could it be the brake hose?
