Just replacing rear brake pads or disc should not damage the brake line because you should not be touching it. Changing a claiper would requre disconnection and reconnectin of the line.

Why even with new brake parts in the front and rear on my 2995 Ford f150 2wd truck would front brakes work but not back ? I even put truck on bay lift and hit the brakes and rear just kept spinning.


Bill:

Check your master cylinder. It could be a piece of junk lodged in the fluid port for the rear brake lines, or in the brake line its self. The fact that both rear wheels spin tells me that if it is a clogged line, it is between the two manifolds, (one next to the master cylinder, and the other where the rear brake line splits into two... one for each rear hub. Or it could be that the piston in the master cylinder needs to be replaced. I would disconnect one brake line at one rear wheel and disconnect the rear brake line at the manifold (near the master cylinder)and blow that line out with air pressure. . do not leave the rear brake line connected to the master cylinder as you blow air through the lines as you may damage the master cylinder piston packings. You'll have to bleed the brakes when you are done.

1999 Chevy tracker i have a rear passenger brake line that is leaking how do I find the leak and how do I fix the leak


The reason they rot out behind the clips where the brake lines are held to the frame is because they hold moister and salt from the roads they are easy to do with a brake and gasline bend from autozone 12-15$ and 3/8 lines you will have to replace them all because they all will keep blowing out causing a safety hazard and making the vehicle unsafe for the road

I would remove one of the rear lines at the master cylinder and both at the brakes. Then blow compressed air through the line at the master cylinder. Then all you have to do is look for the big mess of brake fluid, and you'll know which is which.

1996 camery station wagon , 4 wheel disc brakes. need to replace brake lines in the rear. what is the name of the junction block , with the actuator in the rear? All 4 rear lines go to and leave this...


Hello, first you Toyota has dual braking system. It goes like this: Left front brake with right rear brake, the right front brake with left rear brake. This a braking safety system that has been incorporated in auto/trucks for a few years now. If brake line is broken. loose wheel caliper, blow caliper piston, any thing that happens to the brake system. You will still have two wheels that have their hydraulic system. Also, the emergency brake will a manual system for the rear wheels.


Why do you need to change your auto brake lines? That valve you are talking about is a load stabilizer valve. It used to limit the amount of hydraulic fluid as more load is place in the rear of your Toyota. Example. by press on the brake pedal, it activates hydraulic pressure to the four wheel disk braking system. The braking system needs to stabilize the hydraulic pressure to the wheel to keep the vehicle moving in a forward motions. Now, by loading the rear of the vehicle this transfer the load disposition of the vehicle by making it heaver in the rear. Therefore, the load compensator valve limit the amount of hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes.



Another thing to remember about this rear load valve, they will get plugged. and the vehicle will not have enough braking pressure for the rear wheels. I hope I answer you question about this load portion valve in the rear of Toyota. GB...stewbison

Brake line diagram


Brake Lines and Hoses
Double-walled steel line is used in the hydraulic lines between the brake master cylinder and the front tube connector, and between the brake master cylinder and the flexible brake hose at the rear wheels.
Double-flared brake lines provide good leak-proof connections.
When replacing hydraulic brake lines, hoses, or connectors, tighten all connections securely. After replacement, bleed the brake system; refer to Section 206-00 .
The wet appearance of the outer cover of the rubber brake hose is referred to as "sweating." This is a normal condition for neoprene rayon braid hose and is not a sign of leakage or cause for replacement of the hose.

Rear brakes lock up


The most likely problem will be the rubber line coming from the splitter leading to the caliper. With age these get soft inside allowing fluid to pass one way easily but not the other. Remove this line and blow through it both ways to insure the fluid can pass both ways. If needed check the line from the master cylinder to the splitter as well.
