No substitution when it come to brake line due to safety factor, i very doubt you going to find it at the local auto parts store and would not recommend to modified or rig the brake line due to high pressure involved. I would either pick one up from the dealer, ebay or junkyard.

Most lines are 3/16" you will need your old fittings or take them to a parts store and match them up, be sure the ends are the same aws your old lines,, either "flared" or "bubble fllare" fittings.

Replace brake booster


  • Slide the tube nut wrench over the brake line to the master cylinder connection. The master cylinder is normally on the driver's side of the engine bay and mounted on the firewall. Orient the wrench so that it fits over the tube nut on the end of the brake line.
  • 2Disconnect the brake line. Turn the nut counterclockwise to remove. Note the location of each brake line. There are four lines total, and they need to be put back in the same location when reinstalling the lines. You may want to mark them with masking tape and permanent marker.

  • 3Unplug the master cylinder cap electrical plug.
  • 4Remove the brake master cylinder to brake booster bolts with a socket wrench.
  • 5Back the master cylinder off the brake booster.
  • 6Unbolt the bolts holding the brake booster to the firewall on your vehicle.
  • 7Pull the cotter pin out of the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin with a pair of pliers. This is done inside the vehicle down in the driver side foot well.
  • 8Pull the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin out to disconnect the brake pedal from the brake booster connecting arm.
  • 9Mark and remove the vacuum hoses on the brake booster and slide the booster off the firewall.
  • 10Install the new brake booster. Installation is the reverse of removal

    My front brake line drivers side, needs a brake line from the master cylinder to the flex hose. only about 4 inches long. i need to know what that part looks like.


    Tubing with two nuts on it. 3/16" in diameter. You wont get one 4" long. 12" may be the shortest. Just bend it around to fit, Don't cut it. Yours will be the flare type. It would be best to take the old one with you to match the ends. Because one nut may be 1/8" and the other 1/4". They also have metric and standard threads.

    How do you disconnect the brakebooster rod from the brake pedal on a 1998 4x4 z71chevy truck? how do you take the plastic conector off?? pics would help


    1. Remove the master cylinder from the brake booster. Use line wrenches and remove the brake lines on the master cylinder. Disconnect the electrical connector. Remove the nuts holding the master cylinder to the brake booster and remove the master cylinder. Lay it down with the line holes up to prevent leakage. The brake activator rod must be removed next---this is attached to the top of the brake pedal arm.
    2. There are two types of brake light switches. One is mounted remotely and has a button that is depressed by the brake pedal when it is released that creates an open circuit and turns the lights off. When the brake pedal is depressed, the button is released and allowed to extend, creating a completed circuit and turning the brake lights on. These are adjustable. All that needs to be done to adjust these switches is to adjust them where they are making contact with the arm of the brake pedal when the pedal is released. The second type is a switch that is directly attached to the brake pedal where the activator rod and pedal arm are attached with a through pin.
    3. Remove the bottom portion of the driver's side dash to gain access to the activator rod. Remove the clip or spring lock from the side of the pin holding the activator rod to the brake pedal. Disconnect the electrical connector to the brake light switch. Rotate the switch upward and dislodge the brake activator rod from the brake pedal arm. Remove the electrical switch. Using a long 3/8-inch drive extension with a swivel and a 15 mm socket, remove the four nuts under the dash on the firewall holding the brake booster to the firewall. Unplug the vacuum line to the booster and remove the vacuum booster from the firewall.
    4. Install the new booster, keeping the brake activator rod on the inboard side of the brake pedal arm. Go under the dash and install the nuts retaining the booster to the firewall and tighten. Install the brake switch over the brake pedal. Hold the electrical end up while the activator rod is pulled and inserted over the retaining pin on the brake pedal arm.
    5. Install the retaining clip on the retaining spring and connect the electrical connector to the switch. Install the lower dash panel. Install the vacuum hose to the brake booster. Install the master cylinder and tighten the nuts. Install the brake lines to the master cylinder and attach the electrical connector. Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder and fill as necessary.
    6. Have someone sit in the car while you loosen the front brake line on the master cylinder. Have the person helping push the brake pedal to the floor and hold it there. Once the pedal is to the floor, tighten the brake line and repeat the procedure for the rear line. Recheck the level in the master cylinder and fill with brake fluid as needed.

    How to replace the fuel filter on a honda accod 1997


    You can find this underhood on driver side's below brake master cylinder. You will need a new fuel filter part # 16010-st5-933

    tools needed: 10mm, 17mm sockets, 17 mm wrench, 3/8 drive short + long extension,rachet, 3/8 drive 14mm crow foot , 14mm short line wrench

    this is a bit trickier to replace but it is simple..some people do the whole job from the top, that is when you will use the 14mm short line wrench,,personally i have found it a lot easier to loosen up the lower fuel line from the bottom ,,, Anyho ....

    # 1 remove gas cap, to relieve fuel line pressure

    # 2 raise the car up and with the long extension , 14mm crow foot , loosen the fuel line at bottom of filter DO NOT totally undo the line at this time or you will get fuel soaked,, put a pan under car so fuel can go there instead of on the floor once you totally undo the line

    # 3 remove the 17mm nut at the fuel rail,( top end of fuel hose going to filter ) do not loose the aluminum washer you need to reuse it

    # 3.5 remove the 17mm bolt for the fuel hose at fuel filter,remove the hose

    # 4 totally undo the lower fuel line but undo it from the top ( engine compartment)

    # 5 remove the 10mm fuel filter bracket bolt,, remove the assembly . you might have to play with it a bit but it will slide up by the master cylinder

    # 6 once out, remove the 10mm bolt that hold the filter in the bracket., install new filter, make sure to line it up on the slot

    # 7 if you look at the body where filter bracket mounts, there is an opening , below where the mounting bolt is, make sure to install the lower bracket nipple inside that hole,

    # 8 before you install the 10mm bracket bolt, start the lower fuel line , from the top , make sure to turn the nut a few turn to make sure it is not cross threaded. once line is started ok, mount the bracket on the body tighten the 10mm bolt,,

    # 9 tightem the lower fuel line ,,

    # 10 install the upper hose, make sure to use new aluminum gaskets, put gas cap back on

    Start the car and make sure there are no fuel leaks

    1998 plymouth breeze left rear brake stays on


    Your E-brake cable needs a to be loosened up and you need to see if the E. Brake is locking up, if the cable is not frayed then you have a problem with a check valve in the master cylinder or in the T where the line goes to the left and right. If you want to know how to check out the hydraulic problem it is more detailed, but first you must make sure that the mechanical part is not binding up.

    No fluid come out when bleeding brakes drivers side front


    Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
    if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault
