SOURCE: Frunt Brakeline replaced. How to

rent a brake bleeder kit. Most auto parts stores rent or sell them.. Its a pump that will pull the fluid through the line, removing the air. just make sure you keep the reservoir full, so not to let any more air in the system. You do each brake one at a time. You can do all four in about 30 minutes. hope this helps

Hi Rick.

An ABS module fault resulting in brakes seizing would be quite usual. The ABS can be tested using a Tech2 (Tech 2 ) scanner. The tool is quite expensive. You will need to get the job done at the dealer's place or at a qualified garage. Also, most problems with ABS module are detected by ECM and you get ABS light on the dash. If problem was ABS, at most it could be an ABS modulator valve. The valve can be checked bleeding fluid at valve and checking if caliper releases.

Regarding the problem, check if both brakes on one side are affected. In that case it is worth checking the master cylinder.

If that does not work, you may have a problem in brake lines. A defective brake line, for example because of a restriction at the rear right hand side brake may hold the fluid, resulting in the front brake from same side seizing. The testing job is done cracking one by one the brake lines at caliper or ABS module. Start from rear wheel (it is more distant from master cylinder).

Replace brake line

Brakelines can be challenging to replace or quite easy. It just depends on which one you are asking about. Some of the brakelines are segmented and the ends have short runs. Others are trunk lines which run the distance from the back wheels to the front ABS unit.

The lines will need to be bleed after the changeover.

With the cheapening of the aftermarket parts system, your ability to find a pre-shaped replacement line is more difficult to do.

There are kits which include ALL pre-shaped lines. They can be normal steel or stainless. Looking at the age of your car its hard for an outsider to say how much you need to spend to repair this. The logic is that all lines were installed at the same time and if one fails to others are not too far behind. If this is a car you wish to keep for the Future, replacing all lines is a good idea.

But for a budget, with close inspection of the remaining lines, you can just replace the broken line.

As I said earlier, pre-shaped lines are harder to find. Some people buy a roll of tubing and make their own lines. This is not for the novice.

Hope this helps.

1987 Nissan Sentra diagram for fuel line routing

There are many online wiring diagram solutions, but the cheapest way to find your diagram is to purchase a haynes or chilton manual from the local auto parts store. Both have excellent wiring, fuel lines, brakelines, etc diagrams. I prefer the Haynes manual myself.

ABS light for My Toyota Caldina is ever on after changing CV joint

These are different systems. You also need to clear the old Code so you are not worrying about something that is fixed.

The ABS light also reports on the rear Brakes too. So whatever you did up front has no repair value for the rear wheels. Some of these systems have circuits which could be scanned with the proper scanner.

This means you can take the car and get it Diagnosed. Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance will do this free if they have the proper scanner. I worked mostly on Ford products but the ABS systems are more or less universal.

The scanner may tell you which wheel or axle still has the problem. Sometimes if the brakelines are removed for a repair, the parts inside the brake system need to be centered for the ABS light to go out. It is a simple matter of rebleeding the brakes. Take it back to whoever worked on it to finish.

Looking for a picture of back brake system for a 1999 ford f-150

Hello, I can tell you where everything is at. Did all my lines in Feb 2011. The rear lines on a F150 come from each rear wheel and they are rubber until the end of their brackets. Metal lines take over and meet at a vent tube holder on the Drivers side of the axle. An overhead rubber line with a splitter is bolted to a threaded vent tube and each rear wheel line fits in the brass block that is part of the Rubber line.

Each rear wheel line has a different size fitting to avoid mix ups. The brake line is the same diameter throughout. All use inverted flare fittings. It is a pain to get the fittings beforehand as they are mixed sizes.

The rubber line with a splitter meets a metal line topside of the frame around the frame hump for the rear wheels. The line is on rubber hangers as it travels toward the front of the truck and meets a metal union just short of the fuel filter. The metal line goes through the frame and tightly runs past the bottom of the Drivers fender and goes outside the frame until it meets the front wheelwell.

The same line crosses back into the inside of the frame and runs parallel with the frame, past the A arms and then ends up attaching to the ABS unit.

The Dealer probably does not have preformed lines. Every combination of bedsize and cabsize will determine how long some of the brake lines are. (Based on wheelbase.)

You have 2 choices. Get a preformed Stainless kit with front lines too, around $200. Make your own and spend hours assembling, bending, and flaring fittings after buying the line and the fittings.

You can go with cheap lines or use what I did, a copper/nickel mixed metal line that Volvo perfected with an extended salt corrosion resistance. It really is a job you only want to do once.
Gotta hand it to the brake mechanics who do it every day.

Here is a Summary. 2 Rubber hoses from each wheel, 2 metal lines to the threaded brass block on the vent tube. 1 rubber hose with the brass block. Then a long run of brakeline, then a connection around the fuel filter, and another long run of brakeline outside and back inside the frame to the ABS unit.

I wish you luck on this repair. I hope my Solution is very helpful.

YR 2000 6 CYL Mercury Cougar, when driving down the road the brakes lock down and it has been decided it is the front right. We have changed hubs in back and pads, calipers and pads in front, brake lines...

Hello, There are scanners made for the ABS system. There is valving inside the ABS unit which routes the brake fluid to the Calipers. It may be not so much that the right wheel is grabbing, but the left wheel is not braking.

There are also different methods to bleed the brakes. Some people like to pump them, some have pressure bleeders, some gravity bleed. I use a Vacuum bleed which seems to work good for me.
With a Vacuum bleed I can tell if one wheel is not drawing fluid or seems clogged. I just use the handheld Vacuum pump with the bleed cup attachment.

You should be able to jack the front up and have a helper pump the brake and spin the front wheels by hand. The action on the left and right side should be similar.

Before you go to use an ABS scanner, disconnect the ABS plug-ins and check for corrosion on the pins. Use a little WD40 or Electrical cleaner on the connections and then reconnect them and try it.
Remember to follow the pattern of bleeding the longest brakeline first. Usually the drivers front is the shortest line. All scanners are not equal, only the more expensive units have the ABS test function.

Good Luck with this, would like to know what finally cured it.

1988 Lincoln Mark VII, Bill Blass, My abs system has seemed to stop working, doesnt want to allow the breaks to stay pumped up... when car is running brakes are gone completely... ive replaced the rotors,...

I have not heard of an ABS causing these problems. Usually, a loss of pressure is a hole in a brakeline or a bad master cylinder.

The first brakelines to leak on my 1988 Bill Blass where those going under the engine. Check in the frame where the lines are routed from the ABS to the front brakes.

I use a Vacuum Handpump Bleeder. As long as there is fluid in the Master, you should eliminate the air. If you have a leak when you draw down each wheel you may hear a whistling, deflating ballonlike sound of the air draw. My handpump has a gauge which will show a pressure drop.

Or you can go the other direction and disconnect the ABS lines to the wheels. When you draw the vacuum from the closed Calipers, there should be little air in the lines. However, a hole in the line will continue to drop the draw from that particular wheel Caliper. This would prove you have an opening in the line.
