The last comment about how to splice is dangerous and illegal in canada. The compression union is not a strong enough to support the pressure and maintain support through the constant use of the brakes. It is legal however to splice the line with a union block. You would have to cut out the bad section, and install new fittings on the existing good line. You will have to double flare the lines the same as original. You can purchase a ready made piece of steel line already flared that you can install between the two existing lines using 2 junction blocks. This is the only safe way to splice the line. Depending on the vehicle it's not that difficult to replace the entire line, just time consuming. Bending is an art, and flaring the lines would have to be done anyway.

A piece of steel brake line can be spliced into the broken line, but you'll need to make a clean cut at both ends of the place you choose to remove the damaged line, using an 'Imp' pipe-cutter, then use compression fittings (available where you purchase replacement brake line) and make sure they're tightened properly. Not too loose, not too tight. Just enough to crimp the brass fitting onto the steel line to hold the pressure. Try NAPA or a local auto parts supply store.

Replace brake booster


  • Slide the tube nut wrench over the brake line to the master cylinder connection. The master cylinder is normally on the driver's side of the engine bay and mounted on the firewall. Orient the wrench so that it fits over the tube nut on the end of the brake line.
  • 2Disconnect the brake line. Turn the nut counterclockwise to remove. Note the location of each brake line. There are four lines total, and they need to be put back in the same location when reinstalling the lines. You may want to mark them with masking tape and permanent marker.

  • 3Unplug the master cylinder cap electrical plug.
  • 4Remove the brake master cylinder to brake booster bolts with a socket wrench.
  • 5Back the master cylinder off the brake booster.
  • 6Unbolt the bolts holding the brake booster to the firewall on your vehicle.
  • 7Pull the cotter pin out of the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin with a pair of pliers. This is done inside the vehicle down in the driver side foot well.
  • 8Pull the brake pedal to brake booster connecting pin out to disconnect the brake pedal from the brake booster connecting arm.
  • 9Mark and remove the vacuum hoses on the brake booster and slide the booster off the firewall.
  • 10Install the new brake booster. Installation is the reverse of removal

    Brake pedal goes to floor with no fluid loss, back brake locks when stopping short


    Remove the back wheel that is locking up.Usually what causes them to lock up is that there is brake fluid all over the shoe.Check the rear brake cylinders.Also check the lines real good.Also make sure your anti lock brakes are not activating when going slow and turning corners.This will make the brake pedal go to the floor also.Hope this helps.Good luck.

    My brake light comes on and fluid spray out from underneath on passenger side


    This sounds like a leaking caliper or brake line. More like a hole in the brake line if it's spraying out -- this is often caused by a brake line rubbing against the chassis. Needs a thorough visual inspection to determine where the brake fluid is originating.

    How to change a master cylinder on 99 e250


    i do agree with the haynes manual.

    First off, pb blaster is your best friend for brake line bolts. You want to **** as much of the brake fluid out of the resivour as you can, Then you need to get the brake lines off the master cylinder that is on there. make sure you use the right size flare nut wrench when you are taking the lines off. rounding off brake line bolts is not fun, trust me. once the lines are off, ( turn counter clockwise) Just make sure you have a towel to put under the brake lines. for excess fluid. then with a ratchet, and extension, and socket you need to take the master off the brake booster. Also disconnect any electrical connectors and keep them clear ofthe brake fluid. When you have the 2 bolts out of the brake booster, the master should pull out and then your ready to work on installing the new one. when you get a new ,master, you can either bench bleed it, or if you want to, you can also install the new one, line up the hole in the brake booster, put the 2 bolts back on, then you need to bleed the master. Most come with instructions.
    1. Begin by removing the cap.
    2. Follow the directions that come with the kit to select the suitable adapters, and then connect the adapters and tubes to the ports on the cylinder. The other ends of the tube extend down into the master cylinder, and are held in place by a plastic clip.
    3. With the bleeder kit installed, fill the master cylinder about halfway with new brake fluid. Use a large screwdriver to depress the valve assembly inside the master cylinder. If you do not have a vise you can mount the master cylinder on the vacuum brake booster and bleed the master cylinder.
    4. Small bubbles will appear in the fluid. Continue working the valve assembly until no more bubbles appear. This indicates that the cylinder has been thoroughly bled.
    once it is bled then you hook up the brake lines, and bleed all the brakes. starting with the furthest from the master cylinder. Passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front, driver front. make sure you check the brakes to make sure there is no air, better to be safe then sorry. also, check anything you had disconnected, to make sure it is not leaking.

    In simple terms, by just looking at it, you can figure out how to do the master cylinder, but to be safe, get a repair manual.
