I had a blown brake hose, and went to replace it, no problem, right? Well, the fitting that goes from the steel line, that connects to the rubber line, was stripped. What options are there? I can't replace the fitting itself. Can I splice into the steel line? Can I buy new lines already pre-bent?
The line I got was the proper line, but I think it was to a newer model camry. Anyways, it was easy to bend to fit in the right place, as the brake like from the junkyard was longer than the original. It is in place and worked like a charm! It only cost $15, not $20.
I am having the same exact problem. This is the only thread I found that mentioned this..
I am going to cut the flare off, replace the threaded fitting, and reflare it. I don't understand why half of the old fitting isn't threaded - makes it impossible to thread into the new rubber hose.
Had the same problem with the rear brakes... The fitting is correctly threaded, but somehow the end is too wide at times. I ended up taking a small file and filed the outer round end until it fit right.
