I have a very bad brake fluid leak on the rear driverside wheel of my 95 explorer. I have 4 wheel discs, the leak is coming from an area where brake hoses meet up, looks like a small box. So 1) what is this part? And 2)will I need any special tools to fix this myself? I understand that one of the hoses is probably to blame, just want to be prepared.
Do you

Hi the only part that I can think of is where the lines go into and it actually connects three lines together. This is called a juntion block normally these don;t have to be replaced unless damaged. Most likely it will be a rubber hose. No just wrenches to remove the brake limes and help bleeding them.

Hello,

Billymac is correct. However, there are 2 steel lines and a rubber line going into the junction block. And I would suggest using Tubing Wrenches to remove the line or lines.
