Q: Brake line leaking

asked by on

My brake line is leaking.

First, you need to determine exactly where the leak is. It could be a line, a rear brake cylinder, master cylinder, caliper, hose, or cruise switch. If you are certain it is a brake line, the line will have to be replaced. DO NOT PATCH OR SPLICE BRAKE LINES. When the leak is repaired, the entire brake system will have to be purged out in order to get all the air out of the system. A qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic can inspect and repair the leak from the brake system.
