Brake fluid leak between brake master cylinder and power booste
170k miles, Brake fluid leak between brake master cylinder and power booster, brakes work fine, no leakage inside car, new pads and discs six months ago low miles since then. Is the master cylinder bad or the power booster or both? Can I rebuild them or do I have to replace them?

    Its the seal on the master cylinder, you can rebuild the master cylinder but sometimes its easier to just replace then deal with rebuilding. It will same you time, but weigh out the cost if your doing it yourself.

    Thanks so much for your reply. I'lln probably replace the mc. Should I be worriedabout the brake power booster having gone bad or getting damaged by the leak?

    Brake fluid can peal paint and sometimes eat into rubber. I would say the brake booster is fine, just when you replace the master make sure you clean off any brake fluid that has gotton on the booster. But I don't think you will have any problems.
