One problem fixed, but now I need help with rear brakes...
Posted 09 August 2004 - 05:00 PM
but... When I went to bleed the left brake (I had to disconnect the line when I pulled everything off) the bleeder screw snapped right off
Then when I got it off of the jackstands and backed it up a little, I noticed a huge puddle of fluid under the other wheel:(:( I guess when everything was hanging waiting to be reattached, it stretched and ripped the hose:banghead: .
So whats next???
I guess I should get a hole new rear hub assembly since it is fairly rusty all over??? Anybody have a couple laying around???
For the hose, I guess I can get them at Napa, Autozone?? Off to check there now...
I really wanted to drive her tonight:mad:

Off to Harry's and get everything from the rear backing plates out to the wheel studs on each side and get the brake line from where its torn--down..making sure to at least be at the 10MM to 10MM junction where the flex hose meets the hard line again.
Donor cars are EA82 powered Turbo 4wd vehicles. Use all the used stuff and make sure your used calipers are good before replacing the disc's or pads would be my tip. It only takes 10 min to go back in and put the pads and discs on after you know the brakes work but they are out of round.
