Does this look fixable? The fluid is not coming out from the hose connection, it looks like it is coming out of the area with the emergency brake spring. I'm wondering if I have to go get a rebuild.

Ever see this before?

There is an O-ring on the inner shaft that the piston rides on. That O-ring must have failed and it's now seeping past the parking brake lever and out the dust seal. They are rebuildable. If you've never done it I would recommend just getting a replacement caliper. The rears are a pain to reassemble if you've never done it and don't know the tricks.

Good call. Rather not mess up my brakes anyway. These are stock so not terribly expensive. Core is $3 so I'll keep it and take it apart.
