Question about 1992 Subaru Legacy

2 Answers

I'm in the process of replacing the brake lines to the rear of the car. I have the right side interior apart but I need the to do something with the dash/blower motor to axcess the firewall. This will allow removal of the old line and insertion of the new line. What is the best way to approach pulling the dash? Full removal or just loosening and lifting.

    No easy way out! That's what I figured before I spent the $12.99

Basically the whole dash needs to be removed to access the firewall but you are just trying to get to the brake line, so you should just be able to remove much of the plastic parts on the front and then gain enough access, maybe remove a metal brace here or there. For some extra room, I would first unbolt the front seats and remove them. Most plastic parts will be held on with clips, all of the bolts should be metric and you want to keep everything in order as you take it out (including the bolts). At the bottom, there will be bolts on the initial plastic panels, unbolt them and then the top part should just start pulling out. If you are having trouble pulling a part out at any time, track down to where it won't budge and you probably will find a bolt. Tearing out the dash will be a lot of work, so good luck and if you get stuck, take a few pictures of the problem area and post them here and I will advise on what to do.

You will be better off removing the whole dash for easier access.Make sure you changed the interior bulbs at one go thus saving future removals..

Right rear brakes keeps messing up on a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus, we keep buying new right rear brakes about every two months or less. Can you help us out?


You have to make sure the brake system is operating properly.Change both rear brakes it sounds like the left rear brake side is not working making the right side wear out so quick.After changing the back brakes bleed them making sure you have no air in your brake lines.start bleeding them from the left rear to the right rear to the left front to right front to master cylinder.

I replaced all 4 brakes on my 98 chevy malibu. for some reason i am not getting pressure back. but am being told i dont need to bleed the brakes. should i anyway. or could the adjusted on the rear drums...


Both air in the brake lines and rear drums too far out of adjustment will cause the pedal to go to the floor repeatedly.

Bleed from the wheel that's farthest away from the master cylinder first, typically driver's side rear. Then bleed the others, ending with the one that's closest to the master cylinder. Generally, right rear, left rear, right front, left front.

Adjust the rear brakes until you hear them rub a bit as you turn the wheel, then back off a couple of notches. Be sure to use the brakes when backing up at first, let them adjust themselves up to where they should be.

Hi there.... i just changed a brake line... i


fill up the master and leave the cap off. open up all the bleeders. allow to sit for 5-10 minutes. hopefully, it will start to gravity bleed. after this, close up all the bleeders and try again. sequence: right rear, left rear, right front, left front. it sounds as if you just have an excessive amount of air and it can sometimes be difficult to bleed. you may need to repeat this process several times.

What order do I bleed the brakes on a 2002 toyota sequoia


ALWAYS START YOUR BLEED PROCESS AT THE WHEEL FARTHEST FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER, WHICH IN YOUR CASE IS THE RIGHT REAR, THEN THE LEFT REAR, FOLLOWED BY RIGHT FRONT AND THEN LEFT FRONT.

Very little (almost nonexistent) rear brakes. Cannot stop rear wheels even with wheels off the ground. Replaced MC, wheel cyl.,Rubber hose, booster, proportioning valve, bypassed rear ABS, shoes, drums,...


What happens when you try to bleed the rear brakes? If nothing comes out, trace each line back toward the proportioning valve--something would be blocking flow of fluid. Disconnect each line at the forward end and see if fluid comes out of the valve openings. You will need a scan tool to complete the bleeding process with ABS. Suggest buying a Chilton's manual for this truck because of the complexity of the ABS system.

Tear down the drum brakes. Put a hose clamp on the brake line... If the line does not have lines on it then use something else to stop the brake filuid flow..
