Replace the wheel cylinder. You'll never get the broken fitting out of the old cylinder.

How easy is it to replace a leaking brake line under the driver's side door on a 1995 oldsmobile cutlass ciera?


In most cases on these older GM vehicles it is much easier to replace the lines from the master cylinder all the way to the rear wheels. You should be able to find brake lines that are preferred and have the correct fitting for what you need to do. Compression fittings are a definite No No!

some things to check ahead of time.
1. Do all the bleeder screws open? If not you may be replacing wheel cylinders and calipers.
2. Are the brake hoses cracked? If they are might as well replace them at the same time.
3. Are the pads and shoes in good shape. If they are getting thin might as week replace them as well.

Just about every GM that I get in the shop with rusted brake lines to the rear end up with a $800 +/- bill. 3 hours labor, 20+ feet of line, proportioning valves (later models), fittings, wheel cylinders. And a bleed and flush.

The lines don't have to look pretty they just have to work!

good luck and let us know how it goes.

Replaced some brake line, rear pads and one rear wheel cylinder. Now no pressure and nothing happening when trying to bleed.


Does the car have ABS ? And does it have an equalizer block for the 4 wheels ?
It sounds like the ABS has been affected, or there is an equalizer block that is stuck on the front wheels only.
Can you open the bleeder or the rear line on the master cyl and get fluid to come out by depressing the pedal ?

My brake line broke under the drivers sear of my 99 durango does the who break line need to be replaced. All the fluid leaked out and you can hear air coming out in the front wheel


Pressure fittings can be used depending on how bad the line actually is you can cut it back far enough to where it is good and use another length of brake line with a few pressure fittings if you do not want to go all new lines however you'll still need to bleed the system brake line to that wheel as well as possibly the passenger side. Obviously you'll need Brake fluid and a few tools.

Broken brake line


Fixing a brake line is not hard, but first the question is where is the line broke... If the line is broke in the rear of the car or truck sometimes it is best to just replace that short peice of line with the screw in fittings on both ends.. On the rear of most cars and trucks the line runs to a tee and out of both sides of the tee a shorter line runs to each rear brake...You can find them at a ford dealer and the line will be bent to the shape of the line you are replacing with the two fitting on both ends.. sometimes its much cheaper to buy from auto zone or advanced auto parts..They also sell lines with fittings in bulk, so if you know how long and the size of the fitting they will give you a peice of straight line with the fittings on the ends and you have to put the bends in the line where needed... NUMBER 2 If the the line is broke on the long straight run from the front of the car or truck that runs back to the tee theses can be fixed with a compresion fitting.. This works great if you only have a pin hole in your line and cost only a few dollars... You will have to cut the line on both sides of the pin hole about a 1/8 inch and slide nut cap on first and next slide on the line ball on the brake line this has to be done on both sides of the broken line.. next is the center peice of the compresion fitting, gently pull the line apart enough to slide the center peice overthe cut line, now the same has to be done to the other side ... Once the the center peice is in place on the cut line slide line balls and nut caps to the center peice start to thread your nut caps on to the center peice tighten..

Need to replace brake line going to drivers side


You can take the line off and take to a parts store that sells metal brake pipes by the foot,there is different size pipes as well as flared end nuts.You will have to bend the pipe to fit then bleed the brake system.Iwould suggest to take it to a shop and have a pipe made up.
