    Leaking Shimano XT M775 Bleed Nipple

    Just reinstalled a set of xt 775's on a new frame. bleed went ok, but i'm getting some mineral oil out of my bleed nipple. not a horrible leak, by any means, but definitely getting some weeping. am using a box wrench/torque wrench combo as a crowfoot, so it's tightened to spec.

    is this a metal-on-metal seal, or is there a rubber seat somewhere in there?

    any solutions besides sending it in?

    Try putting teflon tape on the the threads maybe? I would wrap around the end and poke a hole through.
    XC, Road, XXC, Endurance, Mtn, All-Mtn, Cross, Gravel, just go have fun on 2 wheels!
