Obviously something isn't fine if the line is leaking a bottle a day.

Wipe all the lines clean, and everything around the back passenger hub. Press the brakes a few times, and go back and look at exactly where it's coming from.

I dont think anyone here can help you if you dont know what the problem really is. Its a time consuming process. I did it when I was pissing out power steering, and for my clutch leak. Slowly trace it.

Re: **HUGE brake problem need help**

It is possible you have a cracked line, due to pressure overbuild with something you were doing trying to fix it. A cracked line will be hard to spot since its the line's themselves are pretty small. But look for it. If the line is wet, and its coming from no where else, then the line is busted.

I've never blown a line, but I've been warned it can happen (dealing with my clutch).

I speak on my basis of common sense, I'm no real mechanic, but eh.

Re: **HUGE brake problem need help**

i would check the soft line where u said it was leaking thats more likely i would think to bust. also do what ^ said and check lines. best to hav some1 look at it while u pump tha brakes to find the leak. u could also use cardboard under the car to determine location even tho u said it was passenger side.

just some thoughts

Re: **HUGE brake problem need help**

I would assume it's the brake line on the side you mentioned. Wipe it clean and recheck as mentioned.
