Car copper brake lines.


Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced copper brake lines on a car? I've been putting doing mine off for ages because It looks a **** job.

Now I've got new discs/pads and a fluid change to do so might as well tick it of my list.

Is it as straight forward as it looks? I expect a few stubborn nuts.

Dose the copper pipe need flaring?

Yes, dead easy. Get a tool for about £30 the one that is like chunky pair of pliers is best as it can be used in place on the car, not just in a vice. Obviously that's to flare the ends.

Get a decent selection of male and female ends too, they are pennies and the old ones always gets wrecked undoing as they are invariably seized in.
