Anyone know the size for the banjo bolt and washers?

I replaced my right rear caliper a few months ago. My brake warning light came on yesterday because of the fluid level. Found the soft line has a persistent but slow leak at the banjo bolt that must only leak under pressure. I don't see any puddles or spots on my driveway.

Thanks!

I don't have the specs, but "bolt, oil," Honda p/n 46462-SE0-000, is only about $6 retail.

But why do you think the bolt is at fault? There could be a tiny bit of foreign matter between the bolt and the hose hardware (including the copper crush washers). Also, have you tried retorquing the bolt to spec?

The copper washers are not re-usable. One time crush and thats it.

I cleaned and retorqued the bolt and so far, all is well.
