So I noticed dripping brake fluid yesterday and today I took the wheel off and started taking the brake hose off because I noticed a worn spot in the rubber line that I suspect was causing fluid to leak.

Then I noticed I was missing a bolt on my passenger side caliper.  I took the other bolt off meaning to go to the parts store and see what I could find.  

The bottom bolt is broken off flush in the housing.  I have no experience removing a broken bolt, but the first webpage I found said this is the worst way to break a bolt off.  Awesome.

I'm going to look for an EZ Out at Autozone now.  Has anyone got any tips for the best way to do this?

Stand down, stand down.

Being a Marine, I'm really really good at breaking things.  Sometimes I mean to break them, too.

I applied this skill to get this bolt drilled out, and all is well.
