What is the diameter and length of a 1996 Toyota Corolla brake line?


3/16S OR 1/4 inch but you can't get prebent brake lines you need to make them . You can get the line its cheap enough however if you have a rotted line the best way to handle is to cut out the bad area then you can get short lenghts of line that have fittings and flares on them NAPA has them . So cut the old line after the rot get a peice of line as long as you need you can get 8 inches up to 6 feet . Go right from the fitting on the cylinder or caliper to the cut them you need a cupler the hardest part is you need to put a flare on the old line that you cut witch means you will need a flareing tool there about 30 dollars slide the new fitting on the line flare it . Then it all threads together and is a perment fix bleed the wheel likely the drivers side rear and your good to go

Brake line on '97 cavalier


One can buy brake lines from the auto parts store in your area. Generally, the new ones come with ends that can go into the master cylinder and then connect length by length until the end of the line at the back or front brake cylinders or calipers.

One can bring a sample of a cutoff line to the parts store as a reference to get the correct diameter.

I am buying a 1984 El Camino and the only problem is the back break line is rusted.. I need help with purchesing a new break line. Can you help me? what is the best and the cheapest?


The best way to do it is to go to the auto parts store and buy a premade line. They come in different lengths and with the fittings on the ends. If you don't have a flaring kit, then measure the overall length from a fitting to another fitting and replace the whole thing. From the master cylinder to the rear wheel will probably cost you about $20. Hope this helps.

Replace rear passenger brake line on 1993 cutlass oldsmobile, line rusted in the middle of the car frame and blew a leak.


If you want to do this yourself, just remove the brakeline. Go to a parts store and buy the length of brake line that you need. Most brake lines are 3/8" or 1/4" so get the right size. Get the brake line fittings. You will need tubing cutter, tubing bender, and flairing tool. Just cut it to the right length, bend it to the right shape, and install it. Presto!!! New brake line! Hope this helps. Good luck.

Rear brake line that runs from caliper to frame needs replaced


You can purchase different size (diameter) and length brake lines at an auto parts store. They are inexpensive. The lines are already 'flared' to be connected to another line, all you have to do is disconnect the old line, and attach the new one. Spray the connections several times a day for a couple of days to make them easier to separate. you will also need to bleed air out of the replaced section for the brakes to work properly.

Rear brake line that runs from caliper to frame needs replaced


you can buy brake line at a parts store that has ends all ready on it . you may have to buy a hand bender if there is sharp bends other wise bend by hand . every bend will shorten length . it is best to take old one off and match up .

Power steering and brake line location2002 Chevy Silverado 2500HD


the power steering lines are very short hoses approximately 8 inches long that go from the power steering pump down to the steering box, which is located on the frame, just below the pump. The brake lines run from the master cylinder(where you fill it with fluid on the drivers side firewall) down to the frame, and then follow the frame both directions; both to the front end and the rear end, along the drivers side frame rail, just on the inside of it. The fuel line runs along the same path to the rear.

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

My rear wheel brakeline on durango 1998 blew


Depends on your mechanic ablilites. Steel brake line is basically 0.188 inch diameter line, and the metric 6mm line dia is very closely same.
Dodge uses ISO bubble flare , and not the American standard double flare at the end of the steel tube line. This ISO bubble flare on the steel line then fits into its mate female end which is the rubber hose connector end.
So, easiest way to get rid of the ISO bubble flare and change to American double flare end is:
Some automotive stores such as Parts Plus Auto Stores carry the brass brakeline adapter which has one end being the male end that fits nicely into the rubber hose with its ISO bubble female fitting, while the other end of the brass line adapter is the female end which has the double flare so you can then insert the steel line replacement with standard double flare into this end of the adapter.
Steel line , bungy brake line or equivalent is fine, and has the brake line nuts already on it, and is flared for you too. If you want to stay with ISO bubble line fittings you can get that in bungy brake line lengths too but it is less common for some stores to carry, and that is why the conversion brake line fitting adapter mentioned is so easy a way to change from ISO bubble flare to a double flare for easier use of all steel line being standard American double flared brake line. The brake lines come in straight lengths, 2ft 4ft, and 6ft, so you can use them to fit your necessary total length by connecting them with tubing couplers which the steel tube lines brake line nut gets threaded into.
My same year Durango had its rear line blow thru last year, due to the rusting of the steel brake line. I just got done last week, doing a entire steel line replacement myself. It was a medium sized effort for sure. You should check the other lines for the entire brake system to see if you need to replace more than just that section which failed for you, as my lines showed heavy corrosion at many other locations in the brake line system.
It is easy to double flare brake line tubing , and Sears sells its craftsman brand of brake line double flare tool kit for that purpose at about 60 bucks if I recall it right.
One thing you should do when doing your own double flaring, is to use a dial caliper to measure the diameter of the flare at its widest flared end, to insure you are within the required diameter of flare to insure proper sealing when you tighten down the tube flare nuts. I recall the flare diameter is supposed to be 0.272 inches , plus or minus 0.006 inches ( so range of dial caliper measuring of that formed flare should be between 0.266 inch and 0.278 inch) to insure the right diameter of flare for good sealing.
You can also get steel galvanized tubing line in coils of 20ft and more, with a bunch of brake line nuts ( all this is standard american brake line nuts, for double flared line fitting) from Inline Tube company; www.inlinetube.com.
Check out the great tech info from FEDHILL website, www.fedhillusa.com
Good luck, I did it so you can do it and feel satisfied and safe for the family with solid and sound steel line that is much better than chancing an accident via leaving the rusted line in place.
