Morning chaps.

Has anyone experienced problems with a bleed valve not sealing properly on Brembo calliper?

Car has had fluid change and been back with same issue but can't seem to stop a
Slight weep of fluid running down calliper.

Nothing special about them, either a bit of dirt in the seat or a damaged nipple. Just get it changed out and hopefully all ok.

The aluminium of the calliper can react and bloom/corrode when in contact with the steel of the bleed nipple. Hopefully, being in contact with the brake fluid will stop this but you need to remove the nipple, and check the seat.

Change the nipple as others have suggested and you should be fine.

Nipple has been replaced but unfortunately still leaking.
It has been suggested that maybe the calliper has a hairline crack?

Totally agree with Phil.
Remove and inspect properly.
I doubt it would be cracked and a good engineer in a machine shop should be able to rectify.
