fill up your brake fluid,
have someone step on the brakes, while you look to see where it is leaking from..
if you cant see in properly, remove the wheel..

steel brake lines?...probably rusted out from normal aging..

you may have to wipe down the lines with a rag 1st, to clean them up a bit, before looking for leaks.

hope this helps.
let me know

one wire will be power one wire will low speed wiper and one wire will be high speed wiper.you need to check the grounding of the wiper motor.if you take a jumper wire and attach one end to the battery, or a good ground at the motor or somewhere and the other end then make good contact to the body of the wiper motor and it should work,if it does then you need to permantly hook up a ground wire to the wiper motor.this was a common problem.

Get a number 10 metric or a 7/16" socket and feel at the base of the seat bottom....should be two bolts holding the seat to the floor one on each side, use your light and perhaps you will need to peel back the carpet going to the seat bottom.
Happy Motoring!!

My Motor book gives no timing for your engine that year, which suggests that it is preset. However that size engine ( should be a 97 cu. in. or 1600cc) for the 2 years before shows 8 degrees before TDC for a manual trans and 10 for an automatic. Hope this helps.
