2005 WK...

I've been told to be very specific in description, Sooo here it is..... Is this the brake line and brake fluid squirting out when I'm driving??? It makes a clicking noise while the Jeep is moving and stops when Jeep is stopped. Is it just loose and just needs to be tightened. I know nothing about vehicles but I will fix it myself if I get some advise.

ForumRunner_20130507_212543.pngthis is the root of the problem...I just don't know what to do with it


ForumRunner_20130507_212733.pngthis is where is spraying out to...

Pleeeeeaaaaase help me...I'm a bit on the freaked out side right now cuz I really need my Jeep to run well since she's my dd...

The best way to tell what's going on is clean it up very well with brake cleaner spray around that bolt where the line connects to the caliper. I'm pretty sure there is a copper crush ring in between the line and caliper you may get lucky and that be the only thing that is causing a leak.if you clean it off and nothing sticks out like a sore thumb at the source of the leak. (Tear in line or crack in caliper) I would start with that crush ring.

Probably one on both sides of it. Looks like one between the bolt and the brake line and one between the brake line and caliper

It will just kind of seep out. If you want you can pinch the Line off where it's rubber with line pliers/pinchers. Regardless your gonna have to bleed the brakes after wards and most likely add some brake fluid. But it's not bad to do at all. Just make sure you don't over tighten that bolt. And check for any leaks before you drive it!!!

Not like both sides of the jeep but both crush rings and make sure you wipe down the surfaces to make sure there isn't any dirt or anything on it to cause it not to seal right
