A Mazda B-2200 is a Ford Explorer chasis, same as Ranger. You need to determine if you have HD brakes or std. If the brake code (sticker in the engine compartment) is not available, rear brake drum size will tell the story. Do not assume that a normal 2200 has std brakes as the mfg seemed to assemble however they felt that day. That being said, Ford can interpret the VIN for you.
Study it online- view the pictures. If possible, take the part into the supply house.
NAPA was not able to match my hose, but Advance Auto was. Go figure!!! My light duty c-10 had HD brakes???
Making the brake hose will work, but... it will not have the support bracket. Start early, it may be a long day.

1983 S-15 2WD 2.8L Front brakes pull to the left when braking. I have changed the calipers, hoses, pads (rotors are good). Both rotors are the same temperature after driving. The rear brakes apply a

Can you say for sure that the pull is not from a worn steering part ?
If the steering is tight, it could be a situation where the right side is not working as well as the left. Not as much pressure being applied to the pads.
Its possible there is something going on with the equalizer valve.

How to bleed the brakes

pretty easy, and you can do it with a helper the old school way.
The order you will bleed them is right rear, left rear, right front left front.
(you should bleed toe longest lines first.)

Open the hood and fill the master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid.

Close the cover to the master cylinder.

Get in position at the right rear wheel with the wrench ready to open the bleeder screw on the back of the wheel cylinder.

Have the helper push the brake pedal 3 full times to the floor and hold it down on the 3rd pump. (keep pushing it down)

They should say "Holding" at that point and you will open the bleed screw just a little until you see fluid coming out.
(the pedal will fall to the floor when you open the bleed)

You should close the bleed screw before they release the pedal.

Repeat the process a few times until you don't see air or dirty fluid.

You should check the fluid level every few times you repeat this to make sure it's still full of fluid, and make sure to seal the master cylinder cap before pumping the brake.

The process is the same for all 4 wheels.

You can also use a small clear tube/hose.... put it over the end of the bleed screw and the other end in a bottle or something to catch the mess coming out.

They sell one man bleed kits at the autoparts places, but I found them more messy and not as good as the old way.

hope this helps.

Have 99 saturn SL2. car pulls left upon hard braking. replaced right front caliper which I thought was bad but didn't solve the problem. upon loosening of brake hose to right caliper, with a light brake...

Assuming that the Tires for both Left and Right are:
1. Equal Sizes.
2. Both Properly Inflated - this is a common problem.
3. Have equal wear on them. Example: If the Left Tire is balding on the outside and the Right Tire is balding on the inside, this too is definite sign of an aligment issue; and will cause unequal braking.
Pulling left (or right) during a hard brake might actual mean your Wheel Alignment is way off. When you get one, get a 4-wheel and not just a 2-wheel alignment.
Also: you thought the right thing, but the Left Caliper or Left Brake Hose might also be bad (sticking) causing the left side to brake "harder" then the right side.
You can also Bleed the entire System (all four wheels) starting at the Right Rear, then Left Rear, then Front Right, followed by the Left Front.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

Brake pedal is hard, pulls to driver side

May have a leaking right front caliper thats not applying evenly with the left.Look at the front wheels for excess brake dust.The left wheel should have more dust then the right.Also front left rotor may be pitted causing more friction and excess grabbing on the left.Any brake shop will pull the wheel off and inspect the rotor for free.Dont let them try to sell you two rotors or calipers if only one is bad.Replacing both right and left brake pads is OK

1997 dodge ram pulling to the right please help!!!!!!!!!!!

Make sure the rubber part of the brake hose is not collapsed inside of it. If it is the brake fluid will not flow through it.
Most vehicles have a rubber hose on each side in the front and some even in the back...

Front calibers keep locking up on my 96 dodge dakota 5.2

I would replace the rubber brake hoses at the calipers. They get damaged internally when the calipers are left hanging while replacing pads. I've seen too many garages and shops do it not knowing what is going on inside the hose.

1983 Honda CB550 Electrical Issue

sounds like a poor ground issue, pull out the headlight and check all connections in there, your turn signals are on seperate feeds than the lights but they will probably share the same ground/earth in the headlight
