As most of us couldn't drive regularly until recently, please double check the state of your tyre before start driving.

The owner worked on the brake system previously and despite using the specific make of aftermarket pad and disc, I didn't get rock solid feeling that I used to get from the same setup.

There was heavy rust at the bottom side of the booster cover but dry and there was trace of brake master cyl replaced in the past (but not confirmed).

Having said this, the caliper was overhauled recently by someone that I could be feeling the effect of fresh rubber seal pulling back the piston further requiring tiny bit of extra pedal travel before piston making good contact.

As the owner is using specific type of brake fluid, asked him to bleed the system one more time.

CL master Cyl.

Looked leaking but no trace on/behind the carpet below.

Wanted to limit the time being spent inside the cabin so just peeled off the rubber cap.

And yes, it's leaking.

In fact, quite surprised that it didn't make the carpet wet as quite a lot of fluid was trapped behind the cap.
