Replacing Brake Lines with Stainless Braided

Recommended Posts

  • Moderators
Has anyone done the stainless steel brake line replacement and if so, is there anything to look out for? Seems easy on the face of it but that's usually when I screw something up.

Use a good penetrating oil like "PB Blaster", and ONLY use fitting wrenches designed for the purpose and you will be fine. Do one line at at time, using a short piece of plugged rubber hose to plug off the tubing while working to prevent draining too much fluid out while changing the lines as this will get air into the ABS/PSM components which will mandate the use of a PST II/PIWIS unit to correct. Bleed/flush the entire system when you are done. Take your time, it is a simple project...............

The fitting wrench will make sure you do not strip the hose nut. You

may want to flush with racing brake fluid if your going thru this.


Might sound basic but start with the rear pax wheel then the rear drivers and then the right front and then finally the left front. This is assuming that you have a left hand drive car. You can replace the lines in any order but you must bleed in this one.

Buy a power bleeder.

China Freight has a one way valve that makes bleeding easy. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/disp...temnumber=98864

And Sears for your flare wrench set.

Maybe someone else can chime in but i don't think Porsche approves synthetic brake fluid.

If the can is unopened, it's fine; if opened, spend $12 and get some new fluid. I use ATE Super blue in both my P-Cars; it's cheap and good insurance for expensive brakes. Oh, you'll need two cans.
