Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Changed the break lines to rear brakes and now there is no fluid reaching the rear brakes. What could be the problem and how can i fix this?
Your problem could be several things #1 Are you bleeding the brakes properly , start at passenger side rear wheel. Have someone t sit in drivers seat Have them push brake pedal down ,open bleeder.,close bleeder ,have them let brake pedal up . push pedal down again ,you open bleeder again than close bleeder,have brake pedal up continue doing this until a stream of brake fluid without air comes out.( never pump the brake pedal while bleeding) if this is not working after 30 or more cycles you may need to replace your master cylinder. if this was helpful please leave goodback

most of the time the auto parts can give you the right length.but if i had to gess your looking at 6to 7 feet long 8 ft at the most. it would be a good i dear to re place the line going to each wheel to . because those will be the next one to go good luck

Too many variables here. Is there fluid in the master cylinder in the rear brake portion? Does a brake warning light come on when the brakes are applied? Is the pedal solid when braking or does it feel spongy? You could have a problem with the metering or proportioning valve. Since brakes are a safety item I suggest you check with one of the shops that offers free brake inspections.

This generally happens as a result of too much clearance between the shoes & the hub and it causes the complete set of shoes to pivot. You will need to fine tune the adjustment to where the shoes have just the minimum of clearance & they won't be able to bind/hang up any more. good luck

They don't make diagrams for brake lines. The lines are sold in bulk. You need to measure and duplicate the bends in the orignal lines and cut/flare the lines yourself. You will need a tubing cutter, flare tool and tubing bender.
