Default rear driver side brake leaking

I don't know what I need to fix the leaking. It's coming out of that little clip thing.

Same thing happened to me. Replace caliper. Rebuild is difficult, I wouldn't do it.

MX-5 Miata Forum - View Single Post - Rear Caliper Failure Point (pic)
Personally I didn't have any problem rebuilding mine. The disclaimer to that statement was that I replaced mine with used units and then rebuilt the ones off the car 1. as an exercise/learning experience 2. so that I could put them back on and have essentially new calipers, 3. because I had too much time on my hands and, of course 4. it minimized downtime on the car in the event that a caliper was bad to the point that it couldn't be rebuilt (mine were seized, not leaking) and if, for some reason, I buggered the rebuild, I wasn't screwed.

Anyway, the rebuild isn't too tough.
