Lincoln town car 1993 rear brake line diagram


The rear brake line should run down the left frame rail from the master cylinder to the rear of the car. It will terminate to a bulkhead reverse flare fitting into a rubber hose above the center of the axel differential cover, a tee fitting will tee the lines to each rear wheel backing plate, reverse flare fitting for wheel cylinder. If brake fluid is present (droplets) at brake drums, Replace the wheel cylinders.

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.

Rear drum brake locked on a 1998 volkswagen jetta


You could try momentarily releasing the bleed nipple. If that frees the brake it is a hydraulic problem causing it to bind.

You might have assembled wrong and should take a look at the repair manual or compare with the other side but most commonly such problems are caused by the handbrake cable or levers not fully returning or being adjusted to tightly.

When working on a drum brake the cable adjustment should be fully released before finally fitting the drum and then the brake pedal should be pressed hard several times and then the cable readjusted and the brake checked for correct operation before fitting the wheel. Any problems then are obvious before it goes anywhere near the road.

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.

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.
