I am having trouble getting to rear brake lines to remove and replace. The issue I am having is that the lines go into the frame in front of rear dif. which is behind the body's back seat. there is very little room to get a line wrench to turn. On the otherside of the same location the line is rubber down to the rear dif. then metal line splits to each break. what is the best way to remove one line from the frame without breaking the other? does the junktion box come out?

I was told that my parking brake on my 2002 Kia Sedona is not engaging properly, though there is good tension on the line. I've replaced the rear drum brake pads, and adjusted the parking brake cable that runs from the front to the rear brakes. After all this, the problem is still occurring, and if pushed with the parking brake engaged and the shifter in neutral, it will roll. Any suggestions?

I am having issues with the camber on my driver side front wheel. the first problem i noticed was that when i was parking my truck(sharply turning as well as pushing on the break) the brake would fail and give a griding sound, i was lucky not to crash, i have since learned that if i straighten the wheel the brake will kick back in. this failure of braking only happens when i am trying to park. since then i have bled the brakes, in doing so i realized i might have an alignment issue. as well as t

My 2008 Dodge Avenger will not shift out of Park. The car has less than 30000 miles and there have not been any issues like this before. I tested the brakes and the brake lights still come on and everything appears to still be functional. The car also starts without any problem but it will not allow me to shift out of park. Apparently this has happened to many others and Chrysler has not issued a recall. What a surprise. are there any solutions that I can attempt? I am going to get this issue r

After driving about 5 to 10 miles my brake pedal will get extremely hard and responsive with no travel what so ever. Additionally the brakes start applying themselves and it becomes very difficult to keep the car up to speed. After a little bit of time the issue will go away, say about 5 to 10 minutes once everything gets hot. Finally, when this issue occurs if I park the car and any length of time over an hour the pedal will go directly to the floor as soon as i get in and after a couple minut

I have a 2009 Ford F150 2wd. I added a 2 1/2 leveling kit with 34 in tires and 20 wheels. When I turn it makes a sound like its rubbing. I eventually took it to a brake service center and was told that when I turn the abs or breaks are engaging. The gentleman told me that the electronics are reading the tires wrong because of the size and the noise I hear is the brakes engaging an slowing me down. Is there anything that I could do to fix this problem rather then removing the leveling kit and

I was driving my Sante FE yesterday and stopped at a red light. When I released the break all four brakes where still grabbing. As I was close to home, I kept it in 1st gear and drove back home. At that point all four brakes where very hot. Left it to cool, they eventually released. Took it for test drive after and same thing did not happen again. Any thoughts? Seems like a Master Cylinder issue to me as what else can affect all four breaks?
You are right when you mastercylinder related,as you have a very small port (compesating)inside the cylinder and should a small partical enter and block this port the brakefluid cannot push back when releasing the brakes causing the brakes to bind.th ... Hyundai Santa Fe
1990 Isuzu Trooper Brake Problems. The breaks on my trooper seem to have an issue. I had replaced the pads on all 4 not long ago. Just the other day my brake peddle pressure is almost gone. I was told that it could be the booster. I took it to a shop and was told it was the booster. So I replaced the booster and still have the same problem. I checked the valve hose on the booster seems to work. I was wanting to know what else could be causing this issue. I have to down shift and pump brak

Hello first if you can'tell by the wording of the question I am about to ask I am a woman.. I have a 97 Neon and recently my car started making a noise now what I do know about neons is that the brakes squeel even if they are new.

2002 Chrysler Concorde LX. High pitched noise from brake area. Somtimes occurs when brakes are applied gently. It also happens when the brakes are released. Sometimes it can be heard without the brakes being applied. I think the noise is from the drivers side brake. I have had the pads changed and the rotors turned to see if it would solve the problem. It did not help.
The most common cause for this type of condition is when the caliper and backing surface of the pads are properly lubricated to prevent squeal, the procedure is as follows;\015\012\015\012Lubricate both the caliper mating surface an ... Chrysler Concorde

My brakes and power-steering are not working. The brake pedal is hard, but the brakes will not engage. The power steering was not working at the same time. It has brake fluid, but when I took the power steering cap off, while truck was off, it popped fluid out the top, even-though the truck was cold. The brakes are now working better but I can still feel them not catching, like their is air in the system. This problem happened without warning. It sat overnight and when I went to leave in th
Yes, your brakes are boosted by the power steering pump rather than by vacuum. I don't think it's air in the system. More likely your pump has failed, but you can try bleeding the pump. Here is a procedure from autozone.com:\015\012\01 ... 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

I have an 04 MDX with about 130k miles. It runs perfect and has never had a problem. I'm driving the MDX last week and I lightly apply the brakes at about 30mph. All of a sudden it felt like the brake pedal engaged and the ABS was kicking in, even though I was on dry asphalt! very weird. I drove a few seconds and it happened again, this time without applying the brakes. I drove the five miles home, and as I drove it happened every 10-15 seconds, whether I was braking or accelerating.
