Usually goes to a junction block on the axle. Measure it when you get it out. You don't have to duplicate it exactly but make sure that it dosen't rub on anything when axle moves. If you can't get exact length, you can use brass couplers. If line fitting on either wheel cylinder or junction is rusted in, cut the line flush with the fitting and use a six point socket on it. Make sure you bleed system when finished. (not just one wheel)

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox LS and the drivers side front brakes keep locking up. Can I get some help with this problem. None of the lights come on when this happens.

Most likely the brake hose to the caliper is bad. They deteriorate from the inside and clog up, not releasing the fluid. A way to check is raise that tire pump up the brakes, release the hose at the caliper, if the caliper releases, the hose is bad, if it doesn't the caliper is bad or you have no brake pads left and the piston can/is cocked a bit.

Now for my brakes. The right rear brake locks up so badly that it even pulls the rear of the car down. I have completely rebuilt them and bled the entire system.

If the brakes are locking in that way I would suspect you have a partially blocked flexible brake line on that wheel. When you apply the brakes you can force the fluid through but when you release them the fluid will not flow back up the line and is locking your brakes as a result.
You will not see deterioration from the outside of the hose because brake hoses deteriorate from the inside especially near each end.

If you cannot fix it yourself take it to a brake specialist to diagnose.

Look forward to a civil law suit and a criminal prosecution if you disconnect your rear brakes and have an accident which I can absolutely guarantee you will.

No. Rubber brake hose are high pressure hoses meant for brake lines. Substituting any other hose would lead to disaster

Replace rear brake line 98 ford expedition

you will have to get a line wrench and take out the old line. the parts store only sells straight line so you will have to bend it as close to the original as you can. be sure to buy the tool that will help bend the line without kinking it.

2002 avalanche 1500 Left rear brake assembly over heating. Just replaced rotor and shoes both sides, only having trouble on left rear.

Check the flexible hose between the solid brake line and the hydraulic braking actuator (since you said "shoes" this actuator is the wheel cylinder.)

There's trash of some sort in that flexible hose...I can guarantee it.
GM is bad about this problem.

Hope this helps ya out...

Do rear brake rotors on a yukon denali just come off, or is there a trick

after the calipers and brackets are off, the parking brake shoe may be holding it on. if it is,try to loosen the parking brake adjustment if you can get to it, if not, just pry the rotor off, if it has a big lip on it, it will need rotors and parking brake shoes anyhow.

Drivers side rear brake line has a hole in it near a bend just after the axle. Is there a repair kit with a flexible hose and clamps or compression fittings availabe?

The best, SAFEST, and cheapest way to fix anything that has to with your brakes is just replace the brake line.

The brake fluid you're losing doesn't only affect that brake it will affect al four of your brakes and if the leak expands you could mash the peddle one time and have absolutely no brakes at all.

Brake lines aren't that much and it shoud take you under an hour to change it.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for letting ya

Brake line diagram

Brake Lines and Hoses
Double-walled steel line is used in the hydraulic lines between the brake master cylinder and the front tube connector, and between the brake master cylinder and the flexible brake hose at the rear wheels.
Double-flared brake lines provide good leak-proof connections.
When replacing hydraulic brake lines, hoses, or connectors, tighten all connections securely. After replacement, bleed the brake system; refer to Section 206-00 .
The wet appearance of the outer cover of the rubber brake hose is referred to as "sweating." This is a normal condition for neoprene rayon braid hose and is not a sign of leakage or cause for replacement of the hose.
