First, you can not buy them. Even when a car is new in most cases.. You have to buy the tubing,cut it,bend it and double flair it. You only replace the rusted and leaking areas. About 120". front to rear

    Thunder --is 100% on. I just do not use unions. Iam the three day guy wiggling stuff into place and cut and fit untill I get to the next fitting. Now I do have the tools and $300.00 flaring set as well a machine shop and fabrication skills.

That's a good question that likely no one can answer unless they happened to do one an hour ago. Use a tape measure and add a foot to your measurements, then buy sections that can be put together with brass unions. You can follow the original routing but in really tight places you can re-route as long as you avoid tight bends hot pipes, moving components and going around unprotected sharp edges. use as many of the original holders but you can use slide ties to secure anything that might vibrate. Lines were installed before body was assembled and you can only duplicate what's there if you spend three days bending and wiggling stuff into place...even then it won't be perfect.

2005 GMC Envoy, no brake fluid is getting to the right front caliper. disconnected the brake line where the rubber line and the metal line are attached, pumped brakes and get absolutely no fluid through...


You may have a defective line on the right front brake. GM had a batch of bad lines installed on several year models. I had one collapse on mine with the caliper closed and burned my caliper, rotor and pads. Try to disconnect the metal line further back at the equalizer and see if you get fluid there. If you do replace line.

The brake fluide is leaking I have filled up 3 time in 7 day how can I fix it


Look where the fluid is coming from under the car if it is in front of the car it is a front brake line issue these are easy to fix. look at the brake hoses on the left front and right front behind the tire these usually these lines dryrot and leak. the front steel brack line will usaully brake where they are mounted on the car body. If your brake line is leaking from the drivers door back it is a rear brake there is a single brake line that goes to the back and splits into two lines there is another rubber hose by where they split. you can fix brake lines with new steel line and compression fittings where you slide on and tighten the front is 1/8 size line and the back brakes are 3/16.

Where can I get a brake line schematic for my 2000 GMC Sierra ? Some lines were replaced and I think there might be a mix up.


Replaced by who?

Why do you think you have
an issue?

Not likely you'll find any schematic
on brake tubing

On the Master cylinder, which line goes to the front and which goes to the back (ABS Brakes)


Since the front supplies over 65% of the braking power, typically the front line ( closest to the radiator) is for the back and the back line is for the front. Master cylinders work in a reverse order; as the pressure is applied from the back to the front, the back activates the front brakes and vice versa.
Hope this helps!

2005 MAZDA 6 BRAKE PADS


Since you are taking it back, have them check all the brake lines in front, and the wheel cylinder (if the back has drum breaks). Although you had only the front done, it's a good ideas to have them check the back brakes, and the master cylinder. Check your brake fluid before taking it back and make sure it's full, if so, you may just have air in the brake lines. If this is the case, either they forgot to bleed the brakes, or didn't bleed them enough.

Unable to bleed front brakes


loosen the front brake line that goes to the master cylinder fill master cylinder up with fluid and bleed it first by attaching a flexible line from master cylinder front brake side submerge that line into jar of brakefluid keeping air from entering line get someone to pump brake pedal while ur holding line in a jar keep refilling the brake resivoir so no air gets in, once the master is bled front brake side then reattach the origional brake line then remove bleed screw from caliper and let fluid gravity flow down to calliper then bleed the normal way. more than likely your master cylinder has air trapped in the front portion good luck
