Flushed and bled the brakes/clutch hydraulic fluid yesterday and noticed my clutch bleeder block seems to be leaking. I cleaned it up after bleeding the clutch, and it looked like this after a drive today. When I press down or wiggle the metal bleed valve portion while holding the bleeder block, I can see a small amount of fluid around the edges where the metal part sits in the plastic.

Does anyone have experience with this? Is this just an O-ring I can replace under the metal bleed valve? Is it possible I loosened something else on accident while bleeding it? I was under the impression that the metal bleed valve portion is simply pushed into the bleeder block and secured with the little metal clip.

Thanks.

That's an easy fix! The o-ring on the section is starting to deteriorate. Pull it out and replace and you should be good to go.

I've personally had a bad experience with the ECS block. Their clips were crap. line would pop off after a couple presses.

Awesome, thanks! I'd be more tempted with the ECS block if it wasn't $115+... I'll give the o-ring a shot first.

Can I remove the one clip and pull the bleed valve out to get to the o-ring, without disconnecting the whole bleed block?
