    I'd guess the resevoir for the rear brakes is empty...so no fluid to leak out.

    I thought there was a check valve of sorts that prevented the fluid from draining out of the system for that very reason. I thought it was located in the proportioning valve. Am I way off base?

    I seen this happen on a '98 chebby 3/4 ton P/U. A wheel cylinder went out on it, replaced it, and could not get fluid to the rear. The mechanic had to take it to the dealer to get it fixed. Not shure what fixed it, or what was wrong, never asked.
