Re: break fluid leaking

Have you checked the level of fluid in the brake master cylinder? Are you certain it is brake fluid and not air-conditioning condensate.

Changing pads and discs doesn't normally involve undoing any hydraulic lines but it is possible something may have been disturbed.

Until the cause of the leak is established there is no way of knowing if it can be attributed to the work carried out.
