Question Brake Fluid leak.....

Today i noticed some thing on the garage floor. Thought it was oil but then when i took a closer look its brake fluid. After taking a look around i saw that its coming from the fitting on the front of the "Brake Splitter Block" Its the hard line that runs strait down to the driver side brakes.

I tried to tighten up the fitting into the block but its tight. It looks like the hard line wiggles a little inside the fitting and if i pump the brakes a small amount of fluid will come out... (just a small drip)
What would be a solution to this problem?
Should i take the fitting out and try to re-flare the hard line?
Any idea's guys??

Re: Brake Fluid leak.....

I would just replace the entire line. If it is leaking at that fitting, chances are the other end is not far behind. The good news is, it is the shortest brake line.
