    Hi All,

    Noobie here.

    Just in the process of changing a new rear caliper, however, I have a leak where the hose line attaches to the caliper. I have tightened it as much as I can and rounded the freacking nut in the process. However it is still leaking, does anyone have any suggestions how I can stop the leak?

    Thanks in advance.
