You cannot buy pre formed brake lines.. you will have to remove the old one and buy a new piece the same length as the old one and bend it to fit..

Any part of the brake line is replaceable. If there are fittings on either end e Than it is as simple as removing the old piece, buying a piece of brake line with the same fittings, bending the new line to fit in the space, tightening the fittings on the new line, and then bleeding the brakes.

Find out the diameter of the fuel line and get a compression coupling fitting to repair, with a small tube cutter, cut the bad out and install the coupling, tighten the coupling, you only have about an inch or so of length, be sure to check for leaks, your on your way.

How do i change the brake pads?


REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
  1. Remove disc brake caliper from mounting bracket and support with a length of wire or remove sleeve bolt and rotate caliper up and out of the way to remove shoes. Do not allow caliper to hang by the brake line unsupported.
  2. Remove outboard shoe and lining. Use a suitable tool to disengage shoe springs from holes in caliper housing.
  3. Remove inboard shoe and lining, unsnapping shoe spring from piston.
  4. If installing new shoe and linings, bottom piston in caliper bore using large pliers. Take care not to damage piston or piston boot.
  5. Remove bushings from mounting bolt holes in bracket. To install:
  6. Install new bushings to mounting bolt holes in bracket. Lubricate bushings with silicone grease before installation.
  7. Install inboard shoe and lining by snapping shoe retainer spring into piston. Shoe retainer spring is already staked to the inboard shoe. Shoe must lay flat against piston.
  8. Install outboard shoe and lining by snapping shoe springs into holes in caliper housing. Wear sensor should be at the trailing edge of shoe during forward wheel rotation. Back of shoe must lay flat against caliper.
  9. Install caliper.
  10. Apply approximately 175 lbs. (778 N) of force 3 times to brake pedal to seat linings.

No brakes


Either you master cylider went out, or your brake pads int the front are gone (you'll hear loud screeching, metal to metal) or, if this sound is not present, you may have blown a brake line next to one of the front tires, or the metal line that runs to the rear has a hole in it. This is caused by rocks hitting it while driving, or accidentally running over curbs etc.

Prices for complete repair services vary at different locations, however, to have all four brakes replaced (front and back), and have the master cylinder, brake lines checked, your looking at a couple hundred (or less) in parts and labor, depending on what needs replaced.

It's best to have a licened (certified) mechanic take a look at it for a true diagnosis.

Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

Rear metal brake lines


To get the length, just get a roll of string, run it along the existing brake line 'til u get to the rubber line. you can cut off the line near the master cylinder, bring it to the parts store, they can tell you what size you need. You will have to use several lengths of line to reach the back. If this line has rotted thru, you should change all the others, as they are likely to fail soon. countrycurt0
