You are going to want to soak the connections several times over a couple days with something like WD-40. Brake lines are tough to remove due to rust, and this will help. Pick up a set of good quality brake line wrenches also. They are designed specifically for brake lines, and will grip better w/out slipping and rounding off the nuts. You will also want to soak the bleeder valves at the rear wheels, as you will need to bleed the brakes when you are done.

You buy a piece of brake line tubing the same size.
A tubing bender, hand version
Tubing cutter
And a GOOD flare kit
Or use the two ends and a connector, can't rember the name of the connecter.
Me I would go with "B"

Don't do this unless you have skill at and tools to repair flair pipe. You will need the special tubing wrenches as well. The fittings/pipe are probably rusted and - frankly - it will be a night mare getting the repair done ... and then the 'fun' begins when you try to get the air out of the line.

SOURCE: i had a rusted brake line to the left rear wheel

First do you have ABS next did you bench bleed the new master cylinder if not you can;t bleed the rest of the system You have to keep in mind that you have opened the entire system up and there is going to be a lot of air traped in it Getting back to the master cylinder it needs to be bleed pirior to installing it you need a little kit put the fittings into the holes where the lines go put the little hoses in to the resivoior put the cylinder in a vice and push on the pistion from the back until no more comes out of corse you need to fill it first then install it and rebleed the lines starting at the ferthise cylinder away from the master and work to the closest and its going to talk at least 10 to 15 pumps for the rears less for the front becase there closer and there is less line to bleed Make sure you have no leaks first if you see anything at all stop and fix the leak Hopefuly don;t have abs thats a whole differant thing but the brake still work fine with out it get them working and worry about that later good luck

Rear drum brake locked on a 1998 volkswagen jetta


You could try momentarily releasing the bleed nipple. If that frees the brake it is a hydraulic problem causing it to bind.

You might have assembled wrong and should take a look at the repair manual or compare with the other side but most commonly such problems are caused by the handbrake cable or levers not fully returning or being adjusted to tightly.

When working on a drum brake the cable adjustment should be fully released before finally fitting the drum and then the brake pedal should be pressed hard several times and then the cable readjusted and the brake checked for correct operation before fitting the wheel. Any problems then are obvious before it goes anywhere near the road.

Brakes grab and anti skid light comes on during acceleration


Check your rear Emergency brake shoes inside the rear rotors. When the brake lining falls off of the metal backing, the linings get ground up inside the rear rotors. The pulverized lining coats the ABS count sensors and the vehicle thinks both rear wheels are turning at different speeds.

That is when automatic anti skid kicks in. The brakes try to stop the spin of the fastest wheel and intermittently applies the brakes.

Remember there are 2 sets of brakes on each rear wheel. The calipers are visible but the drums are concealed as part of the rotor housing.

1996 camery station wagon , 4 wheel disc brakes. need to replace brake lines in the rear. what is the name of the junction block , with the actuator in the rear? All 4 rear lines go to and leave this...


Hello, first you Toyota has dual braking system. It goes like this: Left front brake with right rear brake, the right front brake with left rear brake. This a braking safety system that has been incorporated in auto/trucks for a few years now. If brake line is broken. loose wheel caliper, blow caliper piston, any thing that happens to the brake system. You will still have two wheels that have their hydraulic system. Also, the emergency brake will a manual system for the rear wheels.


Why do you need to change your auto brake lines? That valve you are talking about is a load stabilizer valve. It used to limit the amount of hydraulic fluid as more load is place in the rear of your Toyota. Example. by press on the brake pedal, it activates hydraulic pressure to the four wheel disk braking system. The braking system needs to stabilize the hydraulic pressure to the wheel to keep the vehicle moving in a forward motions. Now, by loading the rear of the vehicle this transfer the load disposition of the vehicle by making it heaver in the rear. Therefore, the load compensator valve limit the amount of hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes.



Another thing to remember about this rear load valve, they will get plugged. and the vehicle will not have enough braking pressure for the rear wheels. I hope I answer you question about this load portion valve in the rear of Toyota. GB...stewbison

Looking for a picture of back brake system for a 1999 ford f-150


Hello, I can tell you where everything is at. Did all my lines in Feb 2011. The rear lines on a F150 come from each rear wheel and they are rubber until the end of their brackets. Metal lines take over and meet at a vent tube holder on the Drivers side of the axle. An overhead rubber line with a splitter is bolted to a threaded vent tube and each rear wheel line fits in the brass block that is part of the Rubber line.

Each rear wheel line has a different size fitting to avoid mix ups. The brake line is the same diameter throughout. All use inverted flare fittings. It is a pain to get the fittings beforehand as they are mixed sizes.

The rubber line with a splitter meets a metal line topside of the frame around the frame hump for the rear wheels. The line is on rubber hangers as it travels toward the front of the truck and meets a metal union just short of the fuel filter. The metal line goes through the frame and tightly runs past the bottom of the Drivers fender and goes outside the frame until it meets the front wheelwell.

The same line crosses back into the inside of the frame and runs parallel with the frame, past the A arms and then ends up attaching to the ABS unit.

The Dealer probably does not have preformed lines. Every combination of bedsize and cabsize will determine how long some of the brake lines are. (Based on wheelbase.)

You have 2 choices. Get a preformed Stainless kit with front lines too, around $200. Make your own and spend hours assembling, bending, and flaring fittings after buying the line and the fittings.

You can go with cheap lines or use what I did, a copper/nickel mixed metal line that Volvo perfected with an extended salt corrosion resistance. It really is a job you only want to do once.
Gotta hand it to the brake mechanics who do it every day.

Here is a Summary. 2 Rubber hoses from each wheel, 2 metal lines to the threaded brass block on the vent tube. 1 rubber hose with the brass block. Then a long run of brakeline, then a connection around the fuel filter, and another long run of brakeline outside and back inside the frame to the ABS unit.

I wish you luck on this repair. I hope my Solution is very helpful.

Brakes are going to the floor most of the way checked rear brakes and they are still good bleed them and problem still there


Normally when the brake pedal goes almos to the floor it is an indication of low brake fluid. Low brake fluid is an indication that front and/or rear brakes are wearing. As the brake pads wear down more brake fluid will be required in the wheel cylinders or calipers. Hint, the front brakes usually wear much faster than the rear due to the fact that the fronts due a much greater braking function that the rear. Check the front pads. Don't let them get down to the metal scraping metal stage before you change them out. This causes unnessary damage to the rotors. Look at your master cylinder on the firewall under the hood in front of the steering wheel. If the fluid level is belowhte "max" mark add fluid. Low fliud should also show as a red "brake" light on your dash, but not always.

Broken Brake line


It's the same as any other car or truck. Simply cut the rubber off & there's a nut,like any other brake line. Loosen the lines as you would for any job. Now you say the lines are rusted,if they're that bad then you'll need to replace them from front to rear. This requires a tubing bender(hand held) & a doulble flare tool & unions. You can forget about that "expensive" part. It's a brake balance controler & never goes bad.

2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving


It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.
