no problem i just also ran across a thread on here where a guy had the same exact problem he siad it was due to the bolts loosening over time and no loctite or thread seal on the bolt fitting causing the leak, all he did was retighten the bolts and it fixed it. fingers crossed its that gonna retighten them when i get home to my tools.

If that nut was loose you would have coolant leak.

Use the proper sized wrench, flare wrench if you can, big pan to catch the fluid.

Fill and bleed proper according to the procedure, both front wheels in the air.
