    Default Oil tracks

    Whats happening to my drive. Since I got the veccy I have oily lines unde the wheels and it annoying the life out of me. I went out to have a look this morning abd there are beads of oil on the tyres, it's like they are bleeding. Whatever is happening it needs to stop.

    It will probably be a brake cylinder, not a long winded job, that or a fractured pipe, is it front or rear?

    How long have you had the car? Are all four tyres 'beading'?

    How does the pedal feel? it only takes a small amount of fluid to look like a flood cos the wheels spin it out like a pizza base, with the engine off pump the pedal a few times till its rock hard and them hold it down, if it starts to go down you have a problem with it.

    About three weeks, tracks on the dive on both sides but I sometimes reverse on. It makes sense that the beeding could have been picked up off the drive and only one side is faulty.
