The flexible brake hose is attached to a hard line on the body and should be a 14mm open end wrench and a 11mm wrench. The caliper or brake end is usually 14mm and is screwed into the caliper.

All nut and bolt sizes on Audi are metric apart from the torx nuts and bolts.

Brake Line Replacement on 1996 Olds Ciera


If you need to replace a brake line, you're going to have to bleed the line of air once you remove the broken one. I would highly suggest having an Autozone Tech. explain how to get that accomplished (they have always been very helpful to me).

Need to replace front left brake hose


There are a few reasons to replace the front brake hose on your vehicle. The most common reason that you would need to change the hose is a leak. If you have a leak in your brake hose, it can cause your brakes to malfunction. The front brake hose supplies brake fluid to your front brakes. The front brake hose runs from your brakes' master cylinder to your front brake calipers. When the brake calipers do not have the required amount of brake fluid, they will not push down the brake pads on the rotor and stop your vehicle. However, replacing the front brake hose on your vehicle is not a hard project. Though this is an easy repair, there are a few very important steps that you must follow to ensure your vehicle is safe. Follow these steps to replace your front brake hose and get your vehicle safely back on the road.


Step 1 - Set Up

The first thing you need to do for this repair is to jack up your vehicle and remove the tire. Place your jack stand in safe area so that the vehicle can not fall. This is a very important safety measure. Next, place a container under the front brake hose. This will catch the brake fluid for proper disposal.
Step 2 - Remove Old Hose

Before you can put on your new front brake hose, you have to remove the old one. To do this, take your line wrench and back out the hose fitting in the master cylinder. After you have that fitting loose, remove the fitting on the brake caliber. Once you have the hose loose, use a screwdriver to remove the hose clamps that hold the hose in place.
Step 3 - Installing New Hose

Now that you have the old front brake hose removed, you are ready to install the new hose. This is the reverse process to step 2. First, take your line wrench and tighten the hose fitting back into the master cylinder. Next, attach the other end of the hose into the brake caliber. Finally, reattach the hose clamps to keep the hose in place.

When tightening the hose, it is very important not to cross tread the fitting. This will cause the fitting to leak. Also be careful to not overtighten. You can easily break or crack the fitting.
Step 4 - Bleeding the Brakes

The final and most important step in the repair is to bleed the brakes, which involves getting all the air out of the front brake hose. This will make your brakes work properly. To bleed the brakes, you need someone to work the brake pedal on the inside of the vehicle. You need to stay near the brake caliber.

Have the person inside the vehicle pump the brakes 3 times and hold the pedal down on the third time. While he is holding the pedal, you need to back off the nut and the caliber. Do this process a few times until all the air is out. Then replace the wheel and test drive your vehicle.

How do i remove the brake caliper on a 1994 f350 4x4 there are no bolts attaching it


If this is a Pin Slider, here is 1996 steps:

Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1996 F-150, F-250, F-350 4x2, 4x4, Bronco and F-Super Duty Vehicles Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Caliper
Heavy-Duty Rail Slider, F-Super Duty
Replace brake shoe and lining (2001) as follows when the lining is worn to a minimum thickness of 0.794mm (1/32 inch) above the front disc brake rotor shield. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel (1007).
Removal
  1. To avoid fluid overflow when the caliper pistons are pressed into the caliper cylinder bores, siphon or dip part of the brake fluid out of the brake master cylinder reservoir (2K478). Discard the removed fluid.
  1. Raise the vehicle and install safety stands. Remove the front wheel and tire assembly.
  1. Place an appropriate size C-clamp on the disc brake caliper with end of clamp against caliper and end of screw against outer shoe. Tighten the clamp to bottom the caliper pistons in the cylinder bores. Remove the clamp. Do not use a screwdriver or similar tool to pry caliper pistons (2196) away from the front disc brake rotor (1125).




  1. Clean excess dirt from area around pin tabs.
  1. Tap upper caliper pin toward inboard side until pin tabs touch the front wheel spindle.
  1. Using Hydraulic Caliper Pin Remover D89T-2196-A or equivalent and a light hammer, drive the pin from the disc brake caliper as follows:
    1. Position the notched end of the tool against the caliper pin (retention tab half), at a 45-degree angle from the pin retention tabs.



    1. Tap the tool with the hammer to compress the retention tabs.



    1. As the retention tabs are compressed, move the tool to gain a straight approach to the caliper pin, and continue tapping to drive the caliper pin through the caliper/spindle groove.
  1. Repeat removal procedure for lower caliper pin.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not let the disc brake caliper hang by the front brake hose (2078). The front brake hose could become stretched or twisted which can cause the front brake hose to leak and rupture, resulting in failure.
    Remove the disc brake caliper from the front disc brake rotor. If the disc brake caliper is to be removed for service, remove the front brake hose from the disc brake caliper. Plug the end of the front brake hose to prevent fluid loss and entry of air into the system. If the disc brake caliper is not to be removed, wire it up to the frame of the vehicle to avoid damage to the front brake hose.
Installation
stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel.
  1. NOTE: There is a raised section at one end of each shoe so installation can be made in one direction only.

    Install new inner and outer lining.
  1. Lubricate the knuckle upper and lower inner pad grooves and caliper grooves with Disc Brake Caliper Slide Grease, Silicone Dielectric Compound D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A. Install the disc brake caliper on a front wheel spindle, making sure the mounting surfaces are free of dirt.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not allow the tabs of the caliper pin to be tapped too far into the spindle groove. If this happens it will be necessary to tap the other end of the caliper pin until the tabs snap into place. The tabs on each end of the caliper pin must be free to catch on the spindle flanks.
    Position caliper pin with the pin retention tabs oriented adjacent to the spindle groove.
  1. Tap the caliper pin on the outboard end with a hammer. Continue tapping the caliper pin inward until the retention tabs on the sides of the caliper pin contact the spindle face. Repeat procedure for the lower caliper pin.

1995 Chevrolet k1500 4wd front disk brakes bind after complete stop. Accelerate to go and they release after short distance.


I've seen this problem in other types of vehicles before, mostly Chrysler. Sometimes the composite-rubber brake hoses to the calipers fall apart on the inside, holding brake fluid pressure to those calipers for a time. Maybe remove a brake hose to see. Good luck.

Brake Caliper - Removal & Installation

CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.
Inspect the fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir. If the brake fluid level is midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, no brake fluid needs to be removed from the reservoir before proceeding. If the brake fluid level is higher than midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, remove brake fluid to the midway point before proceeding.
  1. Raise the vehicle and suitably support.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Pull down on the front park brake cable.
  4. Remove the front park brake cable from the park brake cable connector.
    NOTE When using a large C-clamp to compress a caliper piston into a caliper bore of a caliper equipped with an integral park brake mechanism, do not exceed more than 1 mm (0.039 in.) of piston travel. Exceeding this amount of piston travel will cause damage to the internal adjusting mechanism and/or the integral park brake mechanism.
  5. Install a large C-clamp over the top of the brake caliper housing and against the back of the outboard brake pad. Compress the brake caliper piston into brake caliper bore to allow the piston enough clearance to slide the brake caliper off the brake rotor.
  6. Remove the C-clamp.
    NOTE Be sure to plug the opening in the brake caliper and brake hose to prevent fluid loss and/or contamination.
  7. Remove brake hose to caliper bolt attaching the brake hose to the brake caliper.
  8. Remove the brake hose from the brake caliper.
  9. Remove and discard the two copper brake hose gaskets. These gaskets may be stuck to the brake caliper and/or the brake hose end.
  10. Remove the park brake cable bracket from the brake caliper. Leave the park brake cable attached to the cable bracket.
  11. Disconnect the park brake cable from the park brake lever on the brake caliper.
  12. Remove the lower brake caliper pin bolt.
  13. Rotate the brake caliper up.
  14. Remove the brake caliper from the upper brake caliper pin bolt.
To install:

How to remove a front brake hose for 1985 chevy 1/2 ton truck


You will find the clip for the front brake hose inside the frame.
Remove it and pull the hose out to remove it from the steel brake line.
The other end will have 2 gaskets at the caliper end....one above and below the hose connection.
Once the new hose has been installed.....open the bleeder on the caliper and remove all air as fluid flows into the new parts.
Only new fresh brake fluid should be added to the master cylinder to replace lost fluid.
Do not expose brake fluid to air for long periods.....it will absorb moisture.
You may have to bleed the other front caliper to restore a firm brake pedal.
After your repair hold the brake pedal down for a few minutes...it should not drop down.....and also inspect for leaks before moving the vehicle.
