Depends on where it broke and amount of corrosion at joints , if it was just a flex line (at each wheel) and you can manage to get nut loose yes just that hose can be replaced , but if it is a metal hard line someplace on the body if it got one hole you can be sure theres dozens more just ready to burst thru better to replace em all then , brakes are the most important system on a car remember that car weights tons and the faster u go the more it takes to stop it
don't skimp on brake repairs

A pin broke on the rear window hinge. do i need to replace the pin only or replace the whole hinge?


the only time i have known these hinge pins break is when they seize solid in the hinge due to corrosion.
even if you can get just the pin, the corrosion would normally still be in the hinge, and will eventually cause problems with the new pin.

i would just change the whole hinge, you know that there will be no further problems from that hinge.

Yes, I just had the samething happen today. DONT drive it anymore. The gears in your rear is about to break. My right gear for the axle broke into pieces. Now i have to make a decision of replacing all the parts broke or replace the whole rear.

What is the blue round thing under the hydrolic on Audi A4 1998

Do you mean the canister below the driver's headlight, down at the bottom? It's an evaporative emissions canister. If that's the one you mean, with the vacuum line coming off the top and running up along the driver's valve cover to the solenoid on the top rear of the engine, it's for emissions purposes. You'd do well to get 7-8 feet of silicone vacuum line and replace the whole thing. The heat of the engine bakes it until it's brittle and it breaks.

2003 altima cruise control button broke off.

I've had the same problem on a 2004. The SET button has popped off for the second time now. Last time I bought the cluster and repaired myself. Hey, plastic parts break but my complaint is that Nissan should supply a $5 plastic button that would just pop in the spot where the old button was. As is you must buy the whole control cluster. That's just wrong!
