Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
If you want to fix this yourself, you will need to first determine what size brake line you require. It is usually either 3/16" or 1/4". You can purchase the brake line at most autoparts stores. It will come in five foot sections. You will need enought brake line for the job and most likely a compression fitting. This job will require a tubing cutter, flairing tool, and tubing bender. Not really a hard job, you can do it!! Good luck and hope this helps.

glennerick, soak them with WD-40 or similar penetrating lubricant, respraying 3 or 4 times a day for a couple days (more days if you have the time). The connections will be too corroded for a wrench, so use vise grip pliers to separate connections. It isn't easy, but it's the best way. As far as the brake line diagram, just replace a section at a time using the old lines as your guide. You can carefully bend them to roughly match the original. They don't have to be exact, just make sure they don't hang down where something can snag on them from the road, keep them away from moving suspension parts (shocks) and don't let them touch exhaust components. If you need further help, let me know. You may want to just hack saw thru the lines so you can get it in a vise to easily remove the rusted lines. (or even bring it to a parts store and get a new connection).

If you want to do this yourself, just remove the brakeline. Go to a parts store and buy the length of brake line that you need. Most brake lines are 3/8" or 1/4" so get the right size. Get the brake line fittings. You will need tubing cutter, tubing bender, and flairing tool. Just cut it to the right length, bend it to the right shape, and install it. Presto!!! New brake line! Hope this helps. Good luck.

You do have 2 lines to the rear on the Lincoln. Both should be replaced if they are rusted out. After replacing the lines will need to be bled of all the air.
