    Oil seeping out of my reservoir Shimano M446 hydraulic disc brake

    I have Shimano M446 hydraulic disc brakes and today i noticed oil seeping out of the screw on the top of my reservoir. Is this normal? Should i just bleed them? The bike has about 100 miles on it. Thanks!

    Take them to you LBS, or contact shimano yourself. I just sent one of my 785s back that were leaking at the reservoir. Had a brand new brake in less than 2 weeks.

    Happened to me with a front XT 785 and Shimano sent me a new one no problem.
