Brake fluid in driver side floor 08 f350

The company that i work for has an 08 f350 and the brake fluid keep leaking into the drivers side floor. I looked to see were its coming from and don't see it. Do you guys know what could be causing this and what to do to fix it?

Really the only way is through the back of the master but it would have to leak through the hydro boost too.

Either that it it is wicking down a wiring harness into the cab.

Are you having to add brake fluid to the master?

Is it a manual trans truck by chance?

yikes, i had a small leak on one of the fittings on the master cylinder and the leak traveled down harnesses to the the firewall and wheel well. There are two fittings with " I believe15mm" nuts on them on front of the master cylinder. One had a slight leak. I just tightened those two fittings and problem was solved.

upper right corner of pic shows the 2 lines with fittings. if you stand in front of the truck they are to the right of the fluid reservoir
