Only take that line off if your changing the caliper. If your doing the pads then just press the piston back in. Put the caliper back on to take the brake line off. there should be a screw through a "block" that is at the top of the caliper. It takes some pressure to break it loose and that's why you should leave it installed while you loosen the bolt.

2005 GMC Envoy, no brake fluid is getting to the right front caliper. disconnected the brake line where the rubber line and the metal line are attached, pumped brakes and get absolutely no fluid through...

You may have a defective line on the right front brake. GM had a batch of bad lines installed on several year models. I had one collapse on mine with the caliper closed and burned my caliper, rotor and pads. Try to disconnect the metal line further back at the equalizer and see if you get fluid there. If you do replace line.

How do you change front brake pads on an Audi A6 2006

How to change front brake pads & rotors (brake disc) on 2006 Audi A6:

Don't disconnect any brake line from caliper!
Don't disconnect any ABS sensor!
For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:

1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Remove brake carrier from wheel bearing housing (two ribbed bolts). 125 Nm
7. Remove brake disc from wheel hub.
8. Install brake carrier on wheel bearing housing. Tightening torque for two ribbed bolts = 125 Nm.
9. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
10. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
11. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
12. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
13. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.

How do I remove the front rotors from a 2006 Hyundai Sonata?

place the car on a jack or lift and raise the car so the tire is several inches off the ground, remove the tire by removing the lug nuts, once off you must undo the brake bleeder, it looks like a small nozzle on top to the calipers, then insert a screw driver or something of the like between the brake piston and rotor and push the piston back, once that is done undo the two screws one on top of the caliper and one at the bottom, once done remove the caliper but be careful not to pull the tube of the caliper to far. then you should be able to pull the rotor off, if it wont come off take a rubber mallet and tap the back of the rotor, the rotor should come off without too much issue

Ho0w do you replace the rear brake pads on a 2006 1.4 golf

It is like any car really, except when it comes to the piston retraction. To make room for the new pads the piston must be twisted counter-clockwise as it is pushed back. There is a special tool for this...around $30 for a KIT or borrow one from the autozone.
I removed the entire caliper to make it easy, which means you will need a little rubber tube to plug the brake line from bleeding out after you remove the screw that holds the line on the caliper.
Do one side at a time, and you can always refer to the other for reassembly. It is really simple. The parking brake is self adjusting and spring on the top back of each caliper. Push on the spring loaded cam and remove parking brake cable with needle nose pliers.
The calipers have 2 bolts/guide pins and the bracket has 2 bolts to mount it to the wheel hub.
Even though the line was plugged, it is still a good idea to bleed the brakes. Push brake pedal, open bleeder screw at top of caliper then close, release brake. Repeat untill no air bubbles can be heard, and the pedal feels solid/normal. Don't forget to refill brake fluid.
Good Luck.

How to replace front discs (abs)

Jack up the vehicle, and place a jack stand under the frame where you are working. Remove the wheel/tire. Observe the caliper. On the back side, remove the bolts that holds the caliper onto the caliper bracket. Suspend the caliper, and try to not stretch or kink the rubber brake hose. Next, remove the bolts that holds the caliper bracket to the metal plate. After the bracket is loose, tap on the backside of the rotor to dislodge it from the hub. This is a very easy procedure.

Replacing front calipers

It is usually easier to disconnect the flexible brake hoses where they join up to the solid ones first then you can remove them from the caliper end without getting them twisted.
