Brake trouble in BAJA
I am in Los Barriles, Baja. Between La Paz and Cabo. I have developed a leak at the banjo bolt, behind the headlight, on the line that goes to the right front brake caliper. I have no front brake, but the reservor is at the propper level. I thought I could use rear brake only, but it eventionally went out also. I have no brakes at all.
The BMW Dealer in Baja doesn't have the part and can't get one from Germany for 15 days.

100,000+ trouble free miles.
1- If you don't count the replacement of a leaking rear main seal that caused the clutch assembly to be replaced at 74,000 miles.
2- The Trunck Latch is now broken on both sides at 86,000 miles.
3- The Banjo bolt behind the headlight that is part of the braking system and goes to the right front caliper has sprung a leak. this is dumping brake fluid on the caliper and front tire.
4- The switch that activates the fans when the temp rises went out at 98,835 miles.
