Thanks for the info MMPrince. It's not rusted through, and it's not leaking at the unions. Looks like the line has been punctured. I don't know which one, and was thinking of replacing both. Went to the dealer today and got a price for both lines. I live in Canada and it's $150Cdn for both pre bent and flared. While there, I asked the parts guy how much Service would charge to put it in, he said "the book says minimum 8 hours". I don't mind the parts $, but that seems like an awful lot of time for a job like this. How much of a ride am I being taken for?
I also went to a nearby brakes/tire store and they weren't all that trust worthy or experienced in replacing this type of stuff. They said, "well, you have to bring in the car so we can see the problem, regardless, all labour is a minimum of one hour. Probably 1 should be enough for this job plus a brake flush.
Do you know how much time it would take a weekender mechanic, given the fact I would be on my back with the car on support jacks! I'm not really looking forward to doing the job myself and if it's like 2 hours at the shop, I'll just bite the bullet on this one.
Any pics or step by step instructions?
Really appreciate your help.
