I have a brake line leaking from the back but I need to pinch it off so I can drive it to the garage for repairs , what line do I pinch off from the master cylinder so I just have front brakes.

Tricky and risky ,and if garage is not to far away, use the parking brake and brake pedal at low speeds to stop. Taking out of gear at stops at a light or crossing/stop sign. Otherwise, cap and plug the main line at rear axle brake tee spliter from front.

Exclamation mark light coming on intermittently

i don't think you should take a chance and drive your car like that cause your brake pedal can go to the floor causing you to have no brakes and possibly get in to an accident.if there is fluid leaking from the middle of the car,then it must be the rear brake line which runs under the car on the drivers side all the way to the back wheels.this is a metal line,so it's most likely rusted out and needs to be replaced ASAP.i replaced the one on my 93 corolla which was leaking right where you say yours is leaking from.JUST REMEMBER,REPLACE THIS LINE FIRST,THEN BLEED THE BRAKES.DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE IT LIKE THAT BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE NO BRAKES AS SOON AS THE LITTLE BIT OF BRAKE FLUID THAT IS LEFT,RUNS OUT.I HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPS. TAKE CARE AND GOOD LUCK, MANNY

Mot failed,nearside rear parking brake recording little or no effort 2001 escort van

hi, this could mean one of a couple of things it could be that the brake shoes on the back need replacing and its always best to replace both sides, when you buy them you buy both sides.
It could also be that the cylinder that pushes the brakes shoes onto the hub this could have a seal gone in it causing brake fluid to leak inside the drum. if this is the case then you need to replace the cylinder and the shoes as the brake fluid would have leaked onto the shoes making them brittle reducing the power of the brakes on that one side.
It could also be that the cylinder has seized their fore it will need replacing.

Either way you are going to have to remove the drum on that one side to check for any of these problems you will be able to see if the shoes are low or if the cylinder is leaking as fluid would be visible comin out of one side of the cylinder.

It can be a difficult job to replace the brake shoes so if you are unsure then please leave to a pro as you might find you cant get the clips back on that hold the shoes onto the inner hub and also the springs that run from one shoe to the other can be a real pain to get back on after so be warned.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Many thanks for using

We just had complete brake rebuild front and rear. the car seems to be stopping okay but at a stand still i can put the pedal down to about 2 inches from the floor without much effort. Even when new the...

It is excessive. The REAR brakes need to be adjusted to a tighter point. The parking brake must also be adjusted. Have the brake shop adjust them.

Be aware that your vehicle may "fish tail" on wet streets. Have them adjusted.

Constant replacement of rear rotors

first i would the car to a professional auto repair shop and have the brakes evaluated. you may have to pay a small fee, but it will pay for itself in the long run. it sounds like the rear calipers are sticking or dragging, or the parking brake is also dragging. the rear calipers are actuated, they stop the car in normal braking and they also are used when the parking brake is applied, the caliper piston will move out and keep the car from rolling when the parking brake is applied. worst case senerio you may need to replace the rear calipers, caliper brackets, rear brake hoses and both rear rotors, unless they can be resurfaced. the vibration or pulsation is more than likely excessive runout or thickness variation in these rotors from the calipers dragging (not releasing). also if the car takes too much effort to stop and you have had to replace these rotors 4 times, that is not normal. have a repair shop check to see if the brake fluid is contaminated. a good and quick sign to check for contamination is if the rubber under the brake fluid cap is distorted.please do not drive this vehicle until it is checked out by a professional auto repair shop. thanks
