Q: Brake line leaks

asked by on February 08, 2016

The driver's side brake line is leaking.

Over time the rubber parts in the braking system will start to leak due to age. If the brake line is leaking then it needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that brake lines should be replaced in pairs. You should replace both sides at the same time. Once the lines are replaced the system would need to be bled and then verify that there are no other leaks.
