Default Oh **** ps bracket bolt

Hey guys I was replacing ps pump on my 09 legacy 2.5i. When I was reinstalling the bracket to the car, I mixed up and put a long bolt in the back and I wrenched it unfortunately until the bolt head snapped and when researching a short bolt in the front left and the rear and the long bolt went in the front right. Unfortunately the previous owner replaced it at some point and had installed 2 long bolts and a short bolt but I mixed up where they had them. Looking at the front left there were threads imprinted on the block way past where it should have stopped in hindsight that was obviously where they had the long bolt before I took it apart. Long story but I have a little liquid coming around the threads of the wrong bolt I installed in the rear of tge bracket. I’m not sure if I cracked the head or what but kinda worried any input or suggestion is much welcomed thanks from a rookie in a pickle!

What color is the fluid coming out of the hole ?

May be put some sealant on the bolt threads and in the hole before installing the bolt.

Default Late response

Sorry had it all put back together that next day. Actually me being a worrier when I wrench on the car had a good friend, long time mechanic who loves Asian imports tell me to chill and he came by the next morning to look at it. Turns out the front left bolt was replaced with a long A$$ bolt that threaded through the top of the aluminum where the bolt continued way thru the hole, it was kinda stripped lock tite’d that. The front right bolt was the correct size went right back in. The rear bolt should have been a small bolt like the front left me mixing up where the previous owner had it in the front left I tried to put it in the back. So the liquid was from the power steering fluid that must have dripped in there when removing the pump, no biggie and went to get the right length bolt for a $ or 2 at auto zone and reinstalled fine and tight even though my previous mistake did pull a couple threads when he removed the “wrong bolt” with a shotty socket he tapped on to the stuck bolt. He steady ratcheted it out.
