Default Help with brake line?

The flare on my brake line, and caused all the fluid to leak. So no more brakes.



left is the screw that holds the brake line to the connector, the middle is the flare that broke off, right is the connector, the other screw and flare are on the other side of the brake line.

So, the flare is metal, instead of it being the brake line material, just flared out to bolt on. So, could I just flare out the brake line and it fit fine? Or should I see if I have to get another brake line. Anything would really help. A lot.

Car is a 93 Nissan Sentra Se-R. I can't use a brake line off any base model Sentra, already tried.



My brake line isn't a full brake line btw. The rear brake lines unbolt under the Car also instead of just being a hole line. And its only on Se-R.

That connection was a bandaid by a backyard mechanic. You will never find a OEM brake line with a ferulle..

That is a compression fitting. Not suitable for the pressures of hydraulic brake lines. you need to get a brake line from a parts store that has the correct flare on the end (bubble flare, double flare, etc) and attach it to the existing brake line at a suitable location. You will need a double flaring tool and the proper fittings to attach it to the existing line. One side of the line will not be touched and should be able to be threaded into the factory location that the rear most section of the repair (basically removing the rear section of the ghetto repaired line). Possibly a junction block or a brake hose near the rear wheel cylinder/caliper. The front position of new brake line will attach at the repaired section of your existing line.

here is a decent tutorial(s) on how to do this.

You guys are actually more helpful then the people on the Sr20 forum. I figured they would have told me something helpful since I have a Car they're familiar with.. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH.

So basically, I need to flare my own line, and put it in place of this line where its broken. Correct?

You can buy them pre-flaired. Go to your local parts store and ask them, they have them divided up by brand and length.

Wouldn't it be easier to just put my own line in that one spot though?

Default Re: Help with brake line?

The easiest way to do it is exactly how I said. Parts stores do not have brake lines by BRAND. Never have. They do have them by length, thread pitch, and flare style. Most say standard double flare. Other choices are European, and Asian. Which have varying thread pitches and flare types. What I would do if I were you is remove the rear section of the ghetto repaired line (after the compression fitting) and bring that piece with you to the parts store. That way, they can match up the brake lines rear fitting so that you can re-attach it to the original place you removed it from. Get the more than enough length. (allow for fudge room, you can always cut more off) The front part of that line is where you may need to cut the other end off and flare that end along with the other (forward section) of brake line and install a union between them. So the parts list should be....
A.(1) brake line with correct factory style flare/thread on one end at least..
B.(2) brake line fittings (the threaded paiece)
C.(1) inverted flare union (standard use for double flare lines)
Tools to borrow/rent
A.(1) double flaring tool
B.(1) tubing cutter

I hope this clarifies any doubts or questions you may have.

standard flare is 37 degree, no need to make it hard.. You can buy a flare kit and do it yourself... Just like anything else this day and age with youtube, just search double flare brake line and you'll find a good video..
