Need to replace brake lines in 95 Deville

It all depends on where and/or how many? Sometimes you start out with the intent to just do one but then while into it it gets worse. You may find out that you need high pressure brake lines, wheel cylinder/s. If your unsure you might want to bring it there for an estimate. You may want to get 2 or 3 estimates, just to make sure your not getting miss led.

Repair manual for a saab 95 1999 2.3t. need to replace the turbocharger.

It is fairly difficult to remove especially if there's a lot of rust. Bolts tend to break instead of coming loose. The 2.3t turbos are known for failure, they are the smaller of the two turbos. The Saab's with the larger turbos are labeled 2.3T -notice the capitol letter T instead of t. They are interchangeable and I highly recommend installing the larger if you want the repair to last. Get you practice removing the one at the junk yard before you work on your own. Oil lines and coolant lines will require some slight re bending/shaping to fit in place of the smaller turbo but it will be well worth it. Instructions could be handy but not necessary for most mechanics. Online Saab forums would have detailed instructions.

Repair brake lines

Please follow the instructions for replacing the brake lines
Instructions1 Inspect the brake line of each wheel and trace the line from the master cylinder to the wheel. The line material is rubber and holds up well from the standpoint of chemical stability to the brake fluid. Rubber lines need extremely close inspection as damage or wear may be difficult to see. At the first sign of wear, have the brake line replaced. It is a good practice to change all the brake lines at the same time.
2 Measure out the distance for each brake line. If you make it a practice to replace all the brake lines when one line shows any wear, you can use rubber tubing as the replacement lines. If you are not going to replace all of them, then you should definitely plan to replace the lines with stainless steel lines. The repairman will make a flared fitting on the tubing before the reassembly of the system.
3 Begin at the master cylinder and as you disconnect the old brake line, make the new connection with the replacement hose. Follow the path of each of the four lines all the way to the wheel and the end of the brake line. Repeat this process for each of the four brake lines.
4 Bleed each brake line to remove all the air and refill the system with brake fluid. Test your brakes before taking it out for a drive.

Brake fluid is leaking from what appears to be some type of small (index finger size) filter in the brake line under the drivers side passenger door. I've never heard of a filter in the brake line,...

i think what your referring to is a proportioning valve that regulates the pressure to the brake that the line goes to,this helps regulate brake pressure to all the wheels so they are the same during braking so there is no wheel lock up while the other wheels don`t lock up.this is a common place for the fluid to leak out when the car gets old enough due to environmental conditions such as winter driving,corrosion,wet weather (lots of rain),salt conditions(living near salt water),it will have to be replaced and the brake lines should be checked for condition as they may need replacing as well.

Abs light it safe too drive

This light is notifying you that you anti-lock brake system has encountered a problem. Check your brake fluid level first if its low then add fluid to the fill line. If brake fluid was needed but the lighjt still came on after you topped it off the light is warning you of a more serious problem. Places like Meinike, Budget Brakes, Midas, or similiar shop specializing in brake services offer free brake inspections. However I would suggest taking it to more than one shop for a free inspection if you get a astonomical repair estimate from the first shop you take it to. It's always a good idea to get a second opinion before you nearly have to take out a loan for brake repair service.

Need to replace the power steering line on my 95 deville before i take something off that dont need to be taken off

you only have to take off anything that stops you from getting to the line. You might have to get a new pump not all lines can be changed.

Abs light comes on & stays on. no brake one time,replaced master cylinder@Midas. light still comes on & brake pedal somestimes goes close to floor . kind of spongy

Your brake pedal needs adjusting! And your brakes need to be replaced! Did the people @ midas look for any air bubbles while they replaced the Master cylinder? Did they get them out? Did they even look at the brakes? All of them?

I need to replace a front brake line on my 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 duelly. This is an ABS system. The dealer's mechanic said it would be an easy fix...just unbolt at both ends and replace. My repair manual...

no it is not that difficult you need to change the line then bleed the affected brake which consists of two people one pumping up and holding the brake pedal down and the other one loosening off the bleeder valve to let the air out depending on how much air is in the system is how long it will take to get them bled after replacement
