    Never thought of that - was going to buy 25ft of Kunifer or copper piping and make my own.

I was told that the brake junction box is rusted really bad on the 02 zx2 i bought. what is that and where is it located on the car? Is it a replacable part and where can i buy it?

Under the car, a block that has the pipes to all four wheels brakes. Replacement is possible, but sometimes you have to change all the pipes as well if they are steel.

the easiest way is to remove the pipes to it from engine bay and use a copper pipe to bridge the pipes, so you will need to cut the ends off and use some jubiees on the pipes to secure it to the copper pipe standard house hold size copper pipe, if you do need to cut ends off make sure you leave and inch and a half on them so you can fix them back on when the heater core is replaced or fixed. just to recommend i would fix the core as soon as possible

How do you chnage the brake pipes in a 406?

Brake pipes? Do you mean pads? or are you talking about the hard brake lines that run from the master cylinder to each wheel?
As far as I know there is no such thing as a "brake pipe".

Leaking fuel line under engine

remove fuel filler cap. if its rubber pipe clamp the pipe on both sides of the hole, cut out the bad bit and force 1 peace of copper brake/fuel pipe about 2inch long into either end of the rubber pipe so they are vertually touching clamp with jubiley clips this will hold for years to come!

The rear brake line broke. the repair man says I need to replace all the lines and the fuel line because everything is rusted and there may be a problem when he bleeds the line causing a problem with the...

I doubt it is so bad. You see, there is a rear brake line >> there is a border, say the hoses which allow the rear suspension to move w/o breaking the lines. In my opinion all the brake pipes shouldn't cost more than 100-150EUR. In the official service, of course, you can multiply, at least here in Bulgaria. My own car, VW Jetta 84 survived the change before ~ 2 months, I was replacing the original pipes judging by the outlook. Of course, your car may differ, and you have to be careful with the brakes! Lawers: I am not responsible for anything, just trying to help!
Anyway, in my case:
- WD-40 spray
- six-sided quality wrench of appropriate size, with a small cutting, so you can pass the key over the pipe and on the nut. There are also keys with a bolt on the cutting, so you can tight the wrench on the nut.
- spare set of the tubes and hoses you will replace. I got brass ones (no more rust) for very adequate prize, under 15EUR, they were ready with the nut at both ends. Replaced even both rear brake cylinders, 5EUR for piece, but don't know your part's price.
As for bleeding, it was working, right? Either do not touch it, or detach both sides and bleed at will, while the pipes are open nothing will reach the cylinder.
After all pipes are in place, put new liquid, blow the air out of the system (it is easy, ask if in needed), and check the nuts of the new pipes. If there is a leakage, tighten gently some more until it stops.
You can fasten the new pipes with strong pigtails, putting a oneside-cut part of hose on the pipe, so that the pigtail won't press it on metal. This was my idea, but turned quite well.
As for the fuel pipe, it is even easier.
Hope I have helped, pls rate. :)

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.

Brake pipe problem.

The local auto parts stores carry splice kits that you can use instead of replacing the entire brake line. Just cut the bad piece out and take it with you for size comparison and they can get you the correct splice kit.
