Chilton won't offer a diagram because there are many line length combinations which can be used to repair this problem.

Often, technicians reroute the lines around the axle nearby the old line and secure it using plastic cable ties that can be bought at your local dollar store or Walmart.

There is a great deal of flexibility in putting a new line in, as long as it doesn't interfere with other moving parts of the suspension.

    If it comes off it should go back on without leaking

My brakes are leaking in the rear driver side need a diagram of brake lines to folllow.


Follow the brake line starting at the left rear wheel, there is no diagram for brake lines, take the tire off and inspect (look) left rear wheel, It will be wet where the leak is, if the inside of the tire is wet then you might want to check the brake cylinder, behind the brake drum. You might want to take it to a shop and get it fixed, It is your life and others, if you can't stop.

Replace rear drums 1990 ford ranger


Remove rear wheels and then remove rear drums. You might have to pound on the drums with a hammer to break them loose fromthe axle shaft. Pound in between the lug nuts to loosen the drums. Inspect brake lining for wear, replace as necessary and then install new drums.

Brakes seized on ford ranger


A drum brake shoe lining may have become separated from the metal pad that holds it in place and will cause the wheel to lock. The only repair necessary is to replace the brake linings with new ones. The loose piece of brake lining, if this is the cause, will not likely cause any difficulty removing the drum.

They don't make diagrams for brake lines. The lines are sold in bulk. You need to measure and duplicate the bends in the orignal lines and cut/flare the lines yourself. You will need a tubing cutter, flare tool and tubing bender.

Brake line diagram.Rear line rusted through at the the point it T's to rear assemblies.


glennerick, soak them with WD-40 or similar penetrating lubricant, respraying 3 or 4 times a day for a couple days (more days if you have the time). The connections will be too corroded for a wrench, so use vise grip pliers to separate connections. It isn't easy, but it's the best way. As far as the brake line diagram, just replace a section at a time using the old lines as your guide. You can carefully bend them to roughly match the original. They don't have to be exact, just make sure they don't hang down where something can snag on them from the road, keep them away from moving suspension parts (shocks) and don't let them touch exhaust components. If you need further help, let me know. You may want to just hack saw thru the lines so you can get it in a vise to easily remove the rusted lines. (or even bring it to a parts store and get a new connection).
