Rear Brake Caliper Leak

I just changed my rear brake pads. As I was bleeding them with bel-ray DOT 4 I noticed that one of the rubber boots was bubbling brake fluid when the rear brake pedal was depressed.

Can this be fixed with new seals, or should I look for a new caliper? Leak is indicated in the picture.

That's a new one to me man.....I would think replacing the part or a seal would fix the problem BUT i'm not sure if you can get that piece or part from an O ring/rebuild kit or not?

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.
