Does anyone have experience with leaking rear brake caliper?

My right rear caliper is leaking where the “hook for the handbrake” is mounted.

Possible to repair or do I need a new one?

there is no seal kit listed by dialogys anyway so a reconditioned caliper may be the best bet.
renault part nr. is 6025371281 for the RHS if I've guessed your model correctly and you have a Lucas caliper.

budwig replacement calipers for Lucas are about 60 euro however it seems that non-lucas calipers are about double that price.
Brake fluid is a lubricant too, so it's a a good idea to replace it frequently.
