If you don't know what you are doing, the best thing to do is let a garage do it for you. Brakes are very touchy. Don't fasten a line good and it leaks, there goes your brakes, and I bet those lines on an 83 are really on there tight. But if you are going to do it yourself anyway, break the brake line at the nut head and put a socket on the head and twist it out.

Brake Line Replacement on 1996 Olds Ciera


If you need to replace a brake line, you're going to have to bleed the line of air once you remove the broken one. I would highly suggest having an Autozone Tech. explain how to get that accomplished (they have always been very helpful to me).

Need to replace front left brake hose


There are a few reasons to replace the front brake hose on your vehicle. The most common reason that you would need to change the hose is a leak. If you have a leak in your brake hose, it can cause your brakes to malfunction. The front brake hose supplies brake fluid to your front brakes. The front brake hose runs from your brakes' master cylinder to your front brake calipers. When the brake calipers do not have the required amount of brake fluid, they will not push down the brake pads on the rotor and stop your vehicle. However, replacing the front brake hose on your vehicle is not a hard project. Though this is an easy repair, there are a few very important steps that you must follow to ensure your vehicle is safe. Follow these steps to replace your front brake hose and get your vehicle safely back on the road.


Step 1 - Set Up

The first thing you need to do for this repair is to jack up your vehicle and remove the tire. Place your jack stand in safe area so that the vehicle can not fall. This is a very important safety measure. Next, place a container under the front brake hose. This will catch the brake fluid for proper disposal.
Step 2 - Remove Old Hose

Before you can put on your new front brake hose, you have to remove the old one. To do this, take your line wrench and back out the hose fitting in the master cylinder. After you have that fitting loose, remove the fitting on the brake caliber. Once you have the hose loose, use a screwdriver to remove the hose clamps that hold the hose in place.
Step 3 - Installing New Hose

Now that you have the old front brake hose removed, you are ready to install the new hose. This is the reverse process to step 2. First, take your line wrench and tighten the hose fitting back into the master cylinder. Next, attach the other end of the hose into the brake caliber. Finally, reattach the hose clamps to keep the hose in place.

When tightening the hose, it is very important not to cross tread the fitting. This will cause the fitting to leak. Also be careful to not overtighten. You can easily break or crack the fitting.
Step 4 - Bleeding the Brakes

The final and most important step in the repair is to bleed the brakes, which involves getting all the air out of the front brake hose. This will make your brakes work properly. To bleed the brakes, you need someone to work the brake pedal on the inside of the vehicle. You need to stay near the brake caliber.

Have the person inside the vehicle pump the brakes 3 times and hold the pedal down on the third time. While he is holding the pedal, you need to back off the nut and the caliber. Do this process a few times until all the air is out. Then replace the wheel and test drive your vehicle.

Brake Caliper - Removal & Installation

CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.
Inspect the fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir. If the brake fluid level is midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, no brake fluid needs to be removed from the reservoir before proceeding. If the brake fluid level is higher than midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, remove brake fluid to the midway point before proceeding.
  1. Raise the vehicle and suitably support.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Pull down on the front park brake cable.
  4. Remove the front park brake cable from the park brake cable connector.
    NOTE When using a large C-clamp to compress a caliper piston into a caliper bore of a caliper equipped with an integral park brake mechanism, do not exceed more than 1 mm (0.039 in.) of piston travel. Exceeding this amount of piston travel will cause damage to the internal adjusting mechanism and/or the integral park brake mechanism.
  5. Install a large C-clamp over the top of the brake caliper housing and against the back of the outboard brake pad. Compress the brake caliper piston into brake caliper bore to allow the piston enough clearance to slide the brake caliper off the brake rotor.
  6. Remove the C-clamp.
    NOTE Be sure to plug the opening in the brake caliper and brake hose to prevent fluid loss and/or contamination.
  7. Remove brake hose to caliper bolt attaching the brake hose to the brake caliper.
  8. Remove the brake hose from the brake caliper.
  9. Remove and discard the two copper brake hose gaskets. These gaskets may be stuck to the brake caliper and/or the brake hose end.
  10. Remove the park brake cable bracket from the brake caliper. Leave the park brake cable attached to the cable bracket.
  11. Disconnect the park brake cable from the park brake lever on the brake caliper.
  12. Remove the lower brake caliper pin bolt.
  13. Rotate the brake caliper up.
  14. Remove the brake caliper from the upper brake caliper pin bolt.
To install:
  1. If reusing the brake caliper retainers, clean the sleeves using denatured alcohol, or equivalent.
  2. Lubricate the brake caliper pin bolts with a thin coat of high temperature silicone lube.
  3. Install the brake caliper to the upper caliper pin bolt.
  4. Rotate the brake caliper down over the brake pads into the brake caliper bracket.
  5. Install the brake caliper pin bolts. Tighten the brake caliper pin bolts to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.).
  6. Remove the plugs in the brake hose end.
    NOTE Install NEW copper brake hose gaskets.
  7. Assemble the brake hose bolt and the NEW copper brake hose gaskets to the brake hose.
  8. Install the brake hose to caliper bolt to the brake caliper. Tighten the brake hose to caliper bolt to 44 Nm (33 ft. lbs.).
  9. Connect the park brake cable to the park brake lever on the brake caliper.
  10. Install the park brake cable bracket to the brake caliper. Tighten the park brake cable bracket bolt to 43 Nm (32 ft. lbs.).
  11. Install the front park brake cable to the park brake cable connector.
  12. Bleed the brake system.
  13. With the engine OFF, gradually apply the brake pedal to approximately 2 / 3 of its travel distance.
  14. Slowly release the brake pedal.
  15. Wait 15 seconds, then repeat until a firm brake pedal is obtained. This will properly seat the brake caliper pistons and brake pads.
  16. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
  17. Lower the vehicle.

NOTE The Bosch 2U ABS system cannot increase brake pressure above master cylinder pressure applied by during braking. There is no need to depressurize the system prior to service.
  1. Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1 / 3 full.
  2. Remove the front wheel. Mark the position of the wheel to the wheel studs, prior to removal, for installation reference.
  3. Install 2 lug nuts to retain the rotor once the caliper is removed.
  4. Using a large C-clamp, bottom the piston in the caliper bore by positioning the C-clamp on the outboard pad and on the round portion of the brake caliper where the piston is housed.
  5. Remove the banjo bolt that fastens the brake hose to the brake caliper. Discard the gaskets.
  6. Cap the brake line to avoid excessive fluid loss or fluid contamination.
  7. Remove the rubber dust boots from the caliper mounting bolt heads (if equipped).
  8. Remove the caliper mounting bolts.
  9. Remove the park brake cable from the caliper.
  10. Remove the caliper from the vehicle.
  11. Remove the brake pads.

How to remove a front brake hose for 1985 chevy 1/2 ton truck


You will find the clip for the front brake hose inside the frame.
Remove it and pull the hose out to remove it from the steel brake line.
The other end will have 2 gaskets at the caliper end....one above and below the hose connection.
Once the new hose has been installed.....open the bleeder on the caliper and remove all air as fluid flows into the new parts.
Only new fresh brake fluid should be added to the master cylinder to replace lost fluid.
Do not expose brake fluid to air for long periods.....it will absorb moisture.
You may have to bleed the other front caliper to restore a firm brake pedal.
After your repair hold the brake pedal down for a few minutes...it should not drop down.....and also inspect for leaks before moving the vehicle.

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.


Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike
