At the point where it is leaking fluid there is obvious outside rust on the line. I think I might have seen this area before but dismissed it as not a probable leak area.
At any rate the line needs replacing....was just hoping I wouldn't have this issue with this car.
Car was made in Mexico and sold in Calif...has been in the rust belt for at least the last 8 yrs or so and almost 50K miles....so the suspension underneath is showing some rust.

...and I am unanimous in that position.
