I am assuming that you mean the brake line is made into the caliper. You will need to trace the brake line backward til you find the junction at the frame and disconnect it there. good luck. Dont forget to rate.

Ford bronco troubleshooting


Dear Shawna;
Yes.
I have had this problem with several vehicles.
The first cure was new rubber hoses to the calipers, as the old ones, (only 5 years old from the factory) were collapsing inside, and not allowing the brake fluid to return toward the master cylinder.
The second was sticking pistons inside the caliper.
Your Bronco is old enough to warrant a really close inspection of the left front caliper, sounds like the piston is sticking, from rust, dirt, corrosion, or over-extension.
(Over-extension is where the pads wore down so far the piston extended too far out or the caliper bore to retract when the brakes were released.)
God bless your efforts.
