Small drip from brake pedal.

I noticed a small amount of fluid on my floor liner. The location is right below the brake pedal. Looked all the way up and really saw no large amounts that would cause a drip. It looks as though it might be running down a cable? Any ideas?

I just noticed the same thing the other day. I haven't looked further yet. I have noticed right after starting I get a check brake message every once in a while. I guess I should look into it further. I just don't want to "clean" the truck up before taking it in to the dealer...

Check the shaft the brake pedal is attached to. See if there is a leak at the firewall where it goes through.

Its not coolant. I have checked the firewall it seems to be clean. I have noticed that the brake reservoir is venting out.

Leak

So is it water? If so, I had the same problem with my truck about a month after I bought it. It was water... rain water. The leak was from above the brake pedal. The problem turned out to be that the urethane seal between the windshield and the body lost its bond in a few places.

Same issue, mine turned out to be a little grease from the moveable pedal mechanism. Seems to have a few small drips of a "thick fluid" every once in a while if I change the pedal positions. Dealer noted the issue.
