This car came both ways, could have pads or brake shoes size 9X1.18", look at the rear, if you see a disk, it has pads, if not brake shoes.

Well, one way to know what you have is to look at the rear brakes....

If it looks like this-

Then you have drum brakes and they require brake shoes.

If it looks like this-

Then it is rotors and requires pads.

1999 ford escort SE rear brake line leak


You can replace line in full section or just a piece. Full section would be my suggestion, remove brake line from end to end that is bad..this doesent mean you have to remove the complete line clear up to the front of car,it should be in sections. After removing bad section take it to auto parts store and as the can give you the correct size without guessing. Most sections bought at auto stores are straight and can be bent useing brake line bender.They useually cost around 15 to 20 dollars.....after bending and replacing be sure to bleed brake system.....nedd more help fill free to contact me...good luck
