    Took my 2010 S3 into main dealer last week for a brake fluid change and after taking car out of the garage today for a wash I noticed fluid on the floor. Both rear calipers are leaking brake fluid from where you bleed them and it's dripped onto the insides of my alloys.
    Really annoyed as I have been using the car and with it dripping onto the wheels it could have sprayed onto bodywork and also from the safety point of view with air getting in the system!
    Think a phone call on Monday to service manager is needed!

    Sounds like a junior tech has maybe not tightened to torque, they may come & pickup the car if this is the case.

    Every one forgets stuff, doesnt have to have been a junior. Thats what Quality Controllers are for :) Or not in this case.

    But yeah, ring and complain, tell them you want it collected as you dont want to drive it. You go so far as getting your drive cleaned, but its not oil, so wont be bad.

    Id go pour water over the wheels, as brake fluid can attack paint. Water will go cloudy, brake fluid absorbs water, so it wont damage the paint once doused. Always pour water on split brake fluid!

    I'd be very very surprised if it was a full blown service tech, but not impossible, but you're right, if it was a junior tech, then unless he's been signed of to work alone on some systems, the master tech or trainer should of checked his work.
