You can buy brake line at a parts store that has ends all ready on it . you may have to buy a hand bender if there is sharp bends other wise bend by hand . every bend will shorten length . it is best to take old one off and match up .

Rear passenger brake dosen't work


Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.

Leaking brake fluid at rear passenger '92


Hi,
Most likely a brake caliper or line. Lines are fairly cheap, calipers cost about $75 a piece if you get them discount online. Novice mechanics can do either or both replacements. DOnt buy parts from a dealer, they are 40% higher than retail. A brake shop will run you in the range of $150 to replace the caliper and pads one one axle, about $300 on both rear (replace both is recommended). Mike

Rear brake line that runs from caliper to frame needs replaced


You can purchase different size (diameter) and length brake lines at an auto parts store. They are inexpensive. The lines are already 'flared' to be connected to another line, all you have to do is disconnect the old line, and attach the new one. Spray the connections several times a day for a couple of days to make them easier to separate. you will also need to bleed air out of the replaced section for the brakes to work properly.

Replacing front driver side (F150) brake line (rubber hose)


Brake fluid is highly corrosive. If you can't get the line loose on the frame side then I would suggest replacing the hard line as well coming from the master cylinder. Or if you have a flaring tool you could cut the hard line just behind the rubber and put a new fitting on it. Pretty easy if you have the tool. Essentially you will wind up kinking or breaking the hard line anyway if the fitting won't come loose easy.

Bleeding brakes


No need to run the engine. Start the bleed procedure from the caliper farthest from the master cylinder, and work toward it. This means bleed the passenger rear first, then the driver rear, then passenger front, then driver front. Don't stop bleeding any caliper until you get three or so consecutive streams of air-free fluid through the bleeder. Monitor the level of fluid in the cylinder, and be sure the cap is on while bleeding - only open it to add additional fluid as needed.
