Q: Rusted brake line

asked by on

I have a rusted brake line that leak in front.

If you have one brake line rusted out, then I would suggest having all the brake lines checked for rust damage. If one line has a leak then the rest are most likely rusted to the point of failure also. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, come inspect the brake system and let you know what repairs are needed to get you safely back on the road.
