Hi ,

almost certainly BRAKE FLUID..!!

have a look at the insides of the rear brakes NOW..!!

as it will contaminate the brake linings = BAD

and could lead to brake FAILURE..

both from damaged linings, and lack of Fluid

Thats the subframe bolt.

That is infront of the brakes, the line goes up there so it might be brake fluid or just some crud. It is not inside the drum so no need to take it apart.

Easiest check: stand on the brake pedal and see if the leak increases.

Sure you don't have any leaking oil cans in your trunk?

better with engine ON - so the engine vacuum boosts the Servo assistance.

Just take the drumbrake of, and see inside, wether it's wet or dry...
I bet it's a leaking brake cylinder, if so, replace both sides.
